Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"This opaque green is a shade darker than GA Shamrock and is equally as dense in saturation of the color. It can be drawn down to a very thin stringer and still hold its true color. It works very smooth for being such a dark green, which are often prone to stiffness. It melts easily and has no visible termination points when separated from itself. While I have had success with encasement under a thick layer of clear, I still suggest testing and experimentation when using opaque greens to check if the application works in different circumstances. GA Tree Hugger adds to the already existing ROYGBIV color fade of opaque's available from GA and is becoming more and more one of my favorite colors to sculpt with. I like to pair it with GA Agua Mist."

best green in the game by far
by Ryan w -
this color is amazing. i wont mention other companies in specific but other greens tend to boil/bubble when surface worked even the slightest bit. TREEHUGGER is the best green in the game period. i have not had any bubbling or boiling even with excessive oxygen. works great in vac stacking as well of course. but for surface work this color beats the rest no doubt.
Darker version of Shamrock
by Alan R -
This color basically works and melts in the flame the same as GA Shamrock. This is denser so it can be stretched thinner in a stringer application; however it will check up when encased or imploded with any depth. Great for surface applications and the batches are always consistent
