I believe we were having a similar conversation about two to three years ago when I began to print Wallace & Grommit. I think you mentioned Paramount3D, maybe the Universal Beige Skin. At that time I did research based on your recommendation, found they have a light skin tone, Fair Complexion Skin. That's what I've been using for all the skin body parts from your designs. I used Universal Beige Skin for Grommit's body, Baby Puss face and will use for Dino's face and Barney's five o'clock shadow. All the Flinstone's and Wallace's body parts will use the Fair Complexion Skin. If you go back and look at my print of Wallace & Grommit, you'll see the two colors side by side.
I like the subtle tone the Fair Complexion Skin gives to the characters. Amazon has both above still available for $24 each. However Paramount3D makes a third skin color, Skin-Ivory ($24). Based on the images it looks like something in between. Could make a great color for a third variation skin tone character and even bone color. I thought about purchasing a roll of it, kind of OCD about how things should be or look I guess.
Like I said three years ago I purchased it from Amazon, the Paramount3D and it's still available today. However now you're looking at two to three weeks shipping.
Which filament company did you use for the 'fair complexion'? I've used a few different colors over the years and each time I finish a reel, the color was no longer available. I like what you are showing here better than my current one.
The family is growing by leaps and bounds now.
Thank you again for taking the time to post your makes.
