Glass Colors for Flesh
by Jim Aerni
I'm having a very hard time finding a flesh colored glass (caucasian). I've looked over the Spectrum collection and the closest I can find is Cotton Candy Pink....ugh. Any suggestions?
Finding the right flesh color has always been a problem for glass workers. Nobody seems to have the same idea about what color flesh is.
If you look at your own flesh, you'll see that it isn't really pink...it's more on the light beige side.
Do a search for flesh color glass. Also, champagne, beige or even bronze might work. It just depends on the shade you want.
Here are some colors that I found on a very quick search:
Wissmach Opal - W2-58D Beige
Wissmach Opal - W2-325D Light Bone Beige
Wissmach Opal - W4-P51D Flesh Pink
Wissmach 568 Champagne Pink
Kokomo 231 Pale Pink Opalume
Sometimes you have to lay one color of glass over another color to get the color you want. It's basically a form of plating. Although your question isn't about plating, here is an article on how it's done: Plating Techniques by Robert Oddy
just in case you ever need to do it.
I hope this is of some help to you.
