Tropical Green is a rich, transparent green reminiscent of jungle palms and warm southern waves. Depending on how it is worked, Tropical Green will also develop turquoise Slyme-like highlights to deliver the full tropical effect!
This color is a transparent version of Sea Slyme, and in thicker applications, near reheated areas, and when the color is used under clear, a subtle blue milk strike will appear. In thinner and hotter applications this color will stay transparent and green.
Tropical Green is a very smooth working color that bends, pulls, and coils easily. The color is also stable in all flame environments, and will retain its clarity after it is worked. Tropical green is a dynamic color that you can use as a pure transparent green, or bring out its shades of blue to add another dimension in your work.
