Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
Memories of first understanding how to use Glass Alchemy's heritage color 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 color 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 color. This is a beautiful opal that will lend well to blown work and contrasts with darker colors such as Glass Alchemy Spanish Moss. 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.

Mint is a very toned down subtle version of agua azul. Works great in fade applications. Can be pulled thin while retaining it's color, works smooth and creamy without boiling. Try under green sparkle for an opaque green sparkle. This color can be garaged hot and encased deep. What you see is what you get
