Colour Options ~ Included with skin
The natural fabric will turn a nice yellow colour with time but you can choose to add colour if you choose. Pick one of the Earth Pigments below to tint the urethane before applying it. Please note you will lose some of the natural translucency and earth pigments don’t create bright/intense colours. You can read more about the process here.
