NS-097 Evergreen is more dark than its NS-053 Forest Green counterpart, Evergreen is smooth and creamy. A neutral flame is the best when working this color but can be worked in practically any flame without fear of discoloration. It works well for encased applications. It is great for stringer applications and thin blown work. Try using it next to NS-053 Forest Green and NS-011 Jade for a beautiful green fade.
