Artist Description by Mike Shelbo: 

"Memories of first understanding how to use Glass Alchemy's heritage colour Sage come to mind when working Mint. This is because in the number system Mint is just a shade lighter than Sage was and works just as nice.

I work this colour unencased and it works creamy and smooth in a variety of flame settings. Quick heats with a sharp premix flame to add, melt or cut-in detail work does not bother the surface of this colour.

This is a beautiful opal that will lend well to blown work and contrasts with darker colours. If blown thin enough, you will see a milky opalescent finish that is easiest to achieve by placing Mint in between two layers of clear before blowing out" - Mike Shelbo
