Seafoam, what is that?

 

Sea foam is white or yellowish in my experience but I understand your are thinking of the colours of the ocean. Do you mean aqua, turquoise or some other nuance of bluish green?

I can see it does look a bit like the seafoam green of a fender stratocaster.

Seafoam is like the halfway point between green and turquoise. I sadly haven't come up with a true turquoise with just nitrates yet.

this is because the camera's exposure is adjusted so the colour shows up but doesnt white out the image. In terms of brightness, I'd say it's about as bright as rubber stars.

Nitrate green with magnesium are perfect green colored stars, same for red, the problem starts if you like use carbonate instead of nitrate at that point you are obligated to use other oxidizer.
