What about seafoam paisley? I designed this with perfect sight.
That's the bee's knees!
Nice work. I really like paisley, it always reminds me of microscopic organisms swimming around.
@C Stone Scroll about 2/3 down the page linked below and get the code for Surf Green vs. (Sea)Foam Green.
I suspect that's what you're looking for.

Wow' that's a beaut!
That Cruz Teal color is hot
Yes thats it! Got it.
Thanks BeeTL for takin the time....
Paint code Dupont 4148L - green : This green automotive paint color is most commonly known as Seafoam Green
I guess my bass is actually surf green instead of seafoam.
Oh well, still going to call it seafoam green since chicks dig it better
But wait! I look up Dupont 4148L and my bass is that color, and they call it seafoam green.
Vindication is mine!!!
And the cat’s pajamas
You sound like an amazing friend. I am sorry for your loss ... and for the poor Seafoam Squier buried out back.
Seafoam green is fine with me.
I like any color except for black. Or white. Or red. Or pink. Or (worst of all) tobacco burst.
What I can't explain is why I have 2 black guitars, 2 white, 1 red, 1 pink, and 3 tobacco burst.
No, I don't have 9 guitars - that would be crazy! I have 17 (plus 4 basses).
I’m with you on the sea foam green. Probably my least favorite guitar color. Ocean Turquoise. Now that’s a color! I will say that Fender has a metallic sea foam green type color that is showing up on the American Professional 2 line that I’m in love with. Making it sparkle was a game changer for me.
After owning & playing only carefully selected all-black guitars in death metal bands for 20 years, I'm now primarily a bass player doing pop and funk more than anything.
I own an orange Jazz and just placed an order for the obnoxious Ferrari Green Dingwall among other things guaranteed to earn everyone's appreciation when I play Mustang Sally on them.
But this tasteless streak all began when I saw a sea foam Fender, didn't even know the difference between a P and J back then. That day something changed (broke?) inside me, I knew I had to pick it up and switch to bass. No shame, I embrace the person I've become.
This thread seems to have opened the door to various shades of blues, greens, and some not even in the ballpark, but I'm a purist. This 24.5" scale SmallGuitars MB-1 started out pink, it was on sale at the time for $150, I bought it knowing I was going to have it and the truss rod cover painted Fender sea foam green by Pat Wilkins. I added the stick-on fret markers, Strat knobs and Gold Tone/La Bella MBLS flatwound strings.
Now you've gone and done it...welcome to the rabbit hole!
Oh, Yeah! Very original! Make sure to copyright your design
Thanks for clearing up the distinction between Sea Foam Green and Surf Green. They are often mistakenly referred to as the same color, there are several posts in this thread that seem to make that mistake. Yes, the pastels are very difficult to photograph and retain the original color, I have tried many times. This Telecaster photographs fairly true to the Surf Green the I am looking at right now in my studio. It is actually an aged yellowish Surf Green compared to newly made Surf Green Fenders that I have, but the others photograph more minty in the bright sunlight. See second photo with this guitar in the six o'clock position. They are all Fender/Chevrolet Dupont Surf Green.
This auto is Surf Green, and that is why it is such a tough color.
