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.
