NS-97 Evergreen is more dark than its NS-53 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-53 Forest Green and NS-11 Jade for a beautiful green fade.
