"Turtle Power is indeed quite a turtly green. It is a middling green, neither bright nor muted, not too blue or too yellow. It comes out lighter than its rod and is streaky, as greens often are. Good organic kind of green. No rod issues. . . . There’s a dark reaction line between the swirl of Effetre New Ivory on the focal bead and the green of the Turtle Power, as you’d expect."

"Turtle Power is a bright mid toned green. It melts smoothly, is well behaved in the flame and coped well when chilled quickly by the texture tool I was using." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Sadly- my sample of Turtle Power [Heroes on the Halfshell] was less than heroic. In fact, it shocked like a turtle dropped on its shell, quietly blowing off an inch at a time. It was a challenge to make anything. It's possible that the entire batch is not all like this - in fact - other testers had no problem at all - and say it is a dead ringer for Split Pea."

"Turtle Power is a nice medium green similar to Split Pea. No bubbling scumming or pitting. It is streaky and I did manage to burn it a little but that was my fault as I often get my bead too close to the torch head when I am doing stringer work."

"Turtle Power is a nice, slightly olive green. It doesn’t change color from bead to bead. The second from the left bead has dots of Buttermilk. It’s just a tad brighter than Split Pea."

"Turtle Power is an earthy green. The color is slightly lighter than Meadow with a hint of emerald. [Turtle Power on the left and Meadow on the right]" Read more at Heather's blog.

"Turtle Power is a dead ringer for the old colour Split Pea, and lighter than Juniper that has more blue tones. Turtle Power melted with no shocking and was very smooth. Here shown decorated with Peace polka dots, and you can see Turtle Power has nice crisp edges."
