Ltd Run colours are manufactured in extremely small quantities and might not be repeated again so the advice is always to buy as much as you can if you like it.

Eel Grass is described as a "nature inspired transparent green "

Testers reported

"My reducing silver glass frit and my TerraNova2 frit both took to this colour very well. Now that I have tested a few of them, I'm thinking that transparent greens that are not reactive with silver generally make good bases for silver glass. I had great results with Effetre Dark Grass Green, Effetre Sage Transparent, and CiM Slytherin as well before this one." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Eel Grass was made as a lighter version of Slytherin . . . hence the comparison! In the rod it is a green with grey and a touch of yellow. It melted like a dream in a moderate flame with no issues at all. A lovely colour for more earthy / neutral beads. A welcome addition to the 104 colour scheme."

"Eel Grass is a midtone green. I got a few bubbles again but not too many." Read more at Heather's blog.

"Eel Grass has great consistency. It is just ever-so-slightly stiff. I had some small amounts of scumming when heated too quickly, but was able to gently burn that off. Stringer will scum up if you heat it too fast, so be careful of that." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"I really like the colour. I do have to say though - that it really wanted to form tiny little bubbles. I found that working it in a softer, slightly bushy flame helped, but if you are looking for a flawless encasing colour - this one will make you a little crazy." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"This is the transparent green I have been waiting for! It is utterly perfect for nature inspired pieces with a subtlety that is rarely seen in many greens. It is less emerald than others with a slight grey tinge to it. As a colour it worked beautifully in landscapes along with other colours and also on its own as a base. It looks nice both shiny or etched. Like many transparent greens it is however prone to boiling and scumming so you need to be mindful when first melting it onto the mandrel. It needs to be worked cooler and further up the flame. There was some initial shocking when melting the glass so preheat carefully."

"A beautiful colour, no bubbles or scumming. A pretty base for stormed Ekho; Raku didn't do well, practically disappearing. Lovely reaction when layered with Copper Green in the bird."
 Sandy Fulbrook
"Eel Grass has a lush summer time foliage feel to it, not quite emerald green but something just a shade off towards grey green in some lights. Another unique, pretty and welcome addition." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.
