A transparent green.




"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. – Kandice Seeber

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Eel Grass was engineered in response to requests for a light / less dense version of Slytherin. It is unique to the 104 lampworking world and fills a gap in the color palette.
I am excited about this green because it is really understated and quite removed from the bright, grassy greens available. There's a bit of grey in this shade . . . there aren't any yellow tones to push it into the olive green area. This makes it unique in the 104 palette. – Kandice Seeber

"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 Kelly
"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.
