Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"This color is a what you see is what you get opaque and falls inline between Peacock and Agua Azul.
The characteristics of working this color are just what you would expect from Agua Azul. It has a slight stiffness at first when melting but like the others, it melts easily and smoothly. It will hold up well in stringers and thin blown applications. When blown and stretched thin enough Really Teally will become translucent and allow light to pass through it. Really Teally can be used with or without encasement in clear. Building up solid sections for sculptural bits shows how well the color melts into itself and also how well it holds heat.
Really Teally is workable in all flame settings and can handle intense spot heats without concern of sublimation or boil. For getting the most bang for your buck with this color you can sandwich it between clear layers for blown and solid applications and still yield the same density and look of color in your finished piece. This color compliments the rest of the opaque blue and green palette, and contrasts extremely well with Rasta Gold." - Mike Shelbo
