You need the watermelon [watermelon green] for that one. The watermelon brown will be way too brown. I see the Do-It store has the Essential watermelon green and that'll get you really close.

Tom, could he not mix minute amounts of yellow & blue to get the green wanted & then add some black flake to that?

He may get close doing that. He may want to try some yellow, blue and a dab of chartreuse too. The chartreuse would get the green to turn a corner a little too. Very little of the chartreuse would be needed.

Great thing about watermelon is it is one of those basic colors you can essentially tweak to your liking.  You can see my version below.  It is a mix of watermelon, green pumpkin, natural and neolime.

Nice. I also like adding a little yellow to my green pumpkin at times to brighten it up just a tad which gets bit better at times depending on the water color.
