"This set of crystal and barrel shaped beads were created with stripes of the following colors: Ocher, an opaque yellow; Monarch, an opaque yellow orange; Budgerigar, a misty opal kiwi green; & Oobleck, an opaque vibrant acid green. Each bead was sprinkled with Val Cox rare Purple Rose made with Z-99 glass frit. I rarely use my small supply of this frit as it is no longer available for purchase. A few beads got a wrap of 99% fine silver wire which was melted in for a tactile feel." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"In this set, I wanted to show it in a simple set with 99% silver wire. Oobleck stayed true with no dark reaction." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"A lovely vibrant and outgoing lime zesty green, works well on its own as well as with other colours."
Juliette Mullett
"Oobleck is a that's-not-a-colour-we-see-a-lot-here-on-earth sort of colour. It's wickedly vibrant, beautiful to work, and I was intrigued by its reactions with other colours. Most of the opaques I tried with it spread on top of it, and I love it with silver." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Normally I’d avoid a colour this bright like the plague but I was pleasantly surprised by Oobleck. It’s an almost neon, acid yellow-green that reminds me of highlighter pens and hi-vis safety wear. It’s a no-fuss glass that works well as fine stringer for line work, and it’s not often I can say that. Lines of Oobleck hold their vibrant hue and they don’t feather or get ‘fluffy’ edges, even with repeated and intense heating. It remains crisp as dots and works well when encased, only losing a tiny bit of its zinginess. [Oftentimes, encasing can really affect the depth of colour.]" Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"As I love to pair new colors with some of my stash of silver infused glass to test reactions, I used a Double Helix rare test glass from 2010 coded as OX376 which is a silver infused yellow green tourmaline super luster jewel tone! The two hues of color worked very well together, if I do say so myself, and I encased some of the reaction under Double Helix Aether and left some other areas to show their shiny goodness."

"This is a bright happy yellow green. I absolutely love this color. Oobleck melts beautifully with no shocking or bubbling."

"I had to look up the word Oobleck and when I did it made me grin from ear to ear to know that it's gooey green stuff that fell from the sky in a Dr Seuss book. How glorious is that! . . . . I am a huge fan of Oobleck, it is a truly zingy lime green. One of the lovely things to find is that along with being awesomely bright it seems to be very dense too which means that it is equally bright and beautiful as tiny dots or fine stringer lines. Also it doesn't look very much paler under encasement than as a solid colour bead." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.
Jolene Wolfe
"Oobleck is an opaque chartreuse - a fine complement to CiM Jelly Bean [and Chartreuse - if you have any]. It is a real spring green shoot colour - lighter and yellower than Eff 212 Pea Green. This is definitely a colour that is not in the current soft glass palette. This is a gorgeous addition to our colour choices - I'm really happy to see it!" Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Oobleck is very opaque - not at all opal like other neon colors in the CiM line. This makes it pretty easy to layer. In fact, unlike any other bright green, Oobleck does not spread, bleed, separate or even create striations much. I had no issues with shocking, bubbling or pitting, either. . . The one major drawback for me is that when encased in clear, Oobleck loses some of its effervescent green shade and goes slightly more acid-yellow in tone." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Oobleck is a tropical, neon green. The eye catching color of this opaque glass is very similar to the peel of an unripened banana. The vibrant addition is a unique color in the world of COE 104 glass and would be perfect for bright, kid-themed designs. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing." See more at Heather's blog.

"Described by CiM as an opaque neon green, this sure is a bright one! This melted like a dream in the flame, and I did notice that it appears to go different shades as you are making the bead ... but the end result was a solid colour without me having to do anything. The closest colour I have is Effetre Pea Green, but Oobleck is a brighter colour with more yellow tones. The blue in the decoration is Effetre Turquoise, the dots on Pea Green have 'sunk' and the bead has more visible striations, on Oobleck the dots are more crsip and have a very fine ring around them. When I encase Pea Green I find it quite soft and I need to really slow down, I don't have this issue with Oobleck, the beads shown were encased with Effetre Yellow/Green. A great addition to the 104 coe colour range."

"Oobleck melted smoothly with no shockiness, and very small amount of bubbles. It is a new color to the 104 palette. It is similar to Pea Green, but Oobleck is brighter and more yellow in tone than Pea Green. Encased with Jelly Bean it is a spectacular shade of chartreuse / lime green. It really pops on both the Peace and Dark Ivory. It was a superb base for the Kalera’s Romance frit blend. Oobleck with silver foil and Bollywood is very nice with lovely tones of red brown, dark greens, and Lime Green. This is a lovely bright, bright green that I am going to want more of."
