Sunscreen

Sunscreen comes in many forms.

PANTONE Shades of Skin

11 Aug

Just wanted to post this link because I think it’s pretty sweet…

PANTONE humanæ

When we think of skin color, we usually think about 6 shades: Fair, Medium, Yellow- Beige, Brown-Beige, Deep, Dark Deep.

Okay, those aren’t really shades, but the point is, there are more than 6 shades of skin color. PANTONE has matched skin colors to their shades in a work in progress:

 “Humanae is a chromatic inventory, a project that reflects on the colors beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the PANTONE® color scheme. (PANTONE® Guides are one of the main classification systems of colors, which are represented by an alphanumeric code, allowing to accurately recreate any of them in any media. It is a technical industrial standard often called Real Color). The project development is based on a series of portraits whose background is dyed with the exact Pantone® tone extracted from a sample of 11×11 pixels of the portrayed’s face. The project’s objective is to record and catalog all possible human skin tones.”

The differences in skin color are amazing. I love looking at skin, I think it’s the most beautiful color(s) out there.
