"The green spacers I have added to this set are Z077 over Sherwood which is a versatile and slightly striated medium green that I use an awful lot for vines and leaves and seaweed." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog. – Jolene Wolfe

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Sherwood is unique to the 104 color palette.
"The thing about CiM greens is that they really fill a gap in the 104 palette. Sherwood is a proper 'natural' kind of green. You could use it for vine cane and leaves and it wouldn't be too in-your-face and garish. Yes, Effetre Grass Green, I'm talking about you!" Read more at Laura's blog. – Laura Sparling

"These two are Sherwood and non veiled rubino oro . . . I am just using standard clear where needed in these. I also am not too happy with the way the Sherwood went kind of milky with this application." Read more at Chris's blog.

"Sherwood is a pretty typical opaque medium green - and by typical, I am not talking about the color, which is lovely. What I mean by it is that this green, along with most opaque greens in the 104 COE palette, tends to be quite dominant. It can bleed a little, and suck up other colors which are applied near it. It's not nearly as bad as some of the Effetre greens, which means it can be used as a layering color as long as you're careful." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Sherwood does react with ivory - not an extreme reaction, just a nice little grey line to add interest." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Sherwood makes a surprisingly good base for Silver Glass. I say surprising only because my personal experience has not led me to expect greens to be really cooperative when used this way. I got great colour for me out of my TerraNova2 frit on the bead on the left, the halos that appeared around it are pretty cool. I also really like the way the reduction frit spread out on the bead on the right."

"Sherwood loses its crispness and definition and tends to spread when used as stringer. Of course, this effect isn't a bad thing - sometimes you can use this type of glass property to your design advantage. The Sherwood is used on top of Dirty Martini here." Read more at Laura's blog.
