Effetre 299 Army Green

Effetre 299 Army Green.  Another nice, well behaved,  slightly streaky Green. Just a shade or two darker than Effetre 219 mint, no metallic luster though. No reaction with ivory.  Very nice.

Effetre 916 Mint

Effetre 916 mint, mint like a mint cream in a chocolate. Slightlt streaky. Gets a very slight metallic Lustre, like a very mild form of what copper green does. Does not react with ivory. Quite nice.

Lustre is not showing very well in the 3 seconds of sunshine we had today, but I'm not going to begrudge the sun, even though it appears to have completely forgotten about generating warmth!!!

Effetre 912 Violet

Effetre 912 Violet. Violet is a perfectly nice, easy to use medium transparent reddish-purple. Well behaved doesn't bubble or scum , very nice to use.  The three beads are a self-coloured, that is a solid coloured Violet bead, layered over white, and the third one in the very interesting shade of purple is the Violet layered over periwinkle. Pro-tip, nearly all the transparent purples look amazing when layered over periwinkle.

Effetre 915 Pale Pink

Effetre 915 "Pale Pink"  Hint of Pink or Polar Pink  might have been a better name. This is a very subtle pink. It's a striking pink but you don't seem to really see the effects when it's hot. It just come out of the kiln a variegated, very subtle, off-white, slightly Rosy colour. Which is not to say that it doesn't have its uses, but if you're looking for a Pepto-Bismol, it's not going to make your heart sing
