A transparent green.




"I found Limelight to be beautiful but a bit fussy and prone to boil. On this string from left to right there is Bullseye Grass Green 1807, Limelight and Limelight etched with Dip N Etch. Limelight comes into its own when etched, which is something that Bullseye glass just does not do easily or well. " Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog. – Jolene Wolfe

"Limelight is a clean, cool green with no hints of yellow. It has a tendency to develop microbubbles – if you heat them further out they may get fewer." See Heather's tests combining Limelight with silver glass on Heather's blog.

"Limelight is a very, very pale transparent green, very pale and ethereal. A very fresh green, and light enough to encase with." Read more at DragonJools blog.
Dwyn Tomlinson
"Limelight is a transparent, lime dream color. The fresh color was a delight to use for encasing. The blue aventurine created a slight 'ink tint' in the example beads. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
Heather Sellers
"Limelight – a very pretty pale green transparent, scummy and 'fizzy' to melt - actually I noted that all but one of the transparents in this batch [of new colors] were particularly scummy when melting, no amount of pinching off the end would clear the bubbles."
Julie Fountain
"Limelight is a very pale transparent green. I had no issues with bubbling or scumming and I found it a really nice consistency to work with. Great for encasing. It’s paler and a touch more yellow than Effetre 031 Pale Emerald Green. It’s a lot paler than Appletini. Limelight etches really nicely too." Read more at Laura's tumblr.
