CiM 465 Oobleck

Oobleck - you may remember - Dr. Seuss - Bartholomew and the Oobleck - was a sticky green substance falling from the sky because the regular weather got too boring. Clearly - they were not subjected to Canadian weather, where, if you don't like the weather you can wait 10 minutes, and it will be different.

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 out colour choices - I'm really happy to see it! 

I am definitely looking forward to using this!

BTW - Oobleck is also a category of non-Newtonian fluid - that changes viscosity under pressure. It is a liquid when at rest but becomes a solid when subjected to pressure. Check out this Mythbusters segment ...
