"Next up, a simpler look of the encased silver glass reaction. The Double Helix Psyche glass was reduced and then encased with Limelight to capture the blues/ pinks and amber hues." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"This glass is a very pale transparent green that was similar to tints available from other manufacturers. The two central beads were sprinkled with Double Helix Aurae fine glass frit and reduced to a glitter metallic gleam and cast a golden glow to the bead surface. The spacers show the clean and clear green color of the glass itself." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"I did see bubbling in the plain spacers, but when I used it to encase, the bubbling was not as noticeable. Limelight is a beautiful pale tint to encase silver glass reactions. In these beads, the "recipe" was Limelight base, layer of silver glass, encase with more Limelight and scrolls/dots of Aurae Light. This green is pure and clean, I really like the result!"

"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 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.

"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.
