NAME: Pantone SkinTone Guide
AUTHOR: Pantone, the “world-renowed authority on color”.
DESCRIPTION: After scientifically studying thousands of skin tones, 110 different shades were selected for this guide to express the wide variety of the human skin.The SkinTone guide was created so the design industries could easily match the colors of fabrics, cosmetics or photographies to the appropriate skin tone. The medical field could also use this guide to develop color standards in cosmetic surgery or prosthetics. Your prosthetic foot will no longer stand out! The Pantone SkinTone guide is available here for $89.
AMUSEMENT RATE: There is something rather creepy in holding the entire spectrum of the human race in your hand. It kinda feels this could bethe project of a mad scientist. Nevertheless, besides the fashion and beauty industries, kids can also benefit from this guide. I remember that when I was a child, I always had a hard time finding the right color for my hand-drawn characters, pink was too bright, white too pale and brown just not realistic. With the SkinTone Guide, kids of the 21st century will be able to accurately pick the skin colors of their human figures when they have fun drawing on Photoshop. Because that’s what kids do nowadays, right?
