Does anyone have a source for skin tone 1/8-1/4" acrylic???????
All the source i've contacted stated that it's a special order and unless you order 2000 lbs that it's not available.
I don't need 2000 lbs.......yet!

Sorry. I don't even know what color 'skin tone' is. I, personally have at least 6 separate skin tones. :D

The closest available at my source is called Ivory, and is a bit light, such as a person living here in the Northwest who goes swimming for the first time in early summer.

It's below the white on the samples shown here:

By skin tone i mean tan, lt brown, sand, alder, etc....

I don't mean to be dense, but, isn't that four different colors?

How about Alabaster Marble, Beige Alabaster, or Tea Satin?

The biggest acrylic place around here is Laird, they have these but I have no idea what they actually look like. They are national so there may be one near you.

I have the Acrylite swatches for both the Glazing and Sign Color samples. There are no skin tone colors in the glazing swatch. In the sign colors swatch there is Ivory but it isn't the best color match for skin tone, just a bit to light.
