How to choose colors

July 10, 2017

Did you know that we offer free silicone samples (you pay postage) to help you make an informed choice on skin tone? We do this because it’s almost impossible to realistically tell color on a computer screen or print-out. Here are some examples and explanations.

In this image you see four of our 6″ flat back penises photographed on a white background in mixed incandescent and daylight. We have labeled the colors so you can see how the base silicone looks and how the color is enhanced for realism in finishing. You can also likely see that it would be very difficult to tell some of these colors apart without the labels and other items in the frame for comparison.

In this second image, the same items are shown, but the lighting is slightly brighter. Despite the proximity of other pieces, the colors shown are being impacted by the shadow of the photographer as well as the ambient light color and the reflective quality of the table.

In this third image, the items are the same ones as shown above, from the same photograph, but the background has been completely removed so that it appears white and without shadows/reflection. In this image, all the skin tones look subtly different again.

Because there are so many factors at work that impact how we perceive the colors, we always recommend picking up some silicone samples to look at in your own home. The light quality in your home will change from day to night, but it will have special characteristics based on where you live in the world, season, weather etc. For all these reasons, having the color in your hand makes much more sense for making an informed decision than guessing based on a photograph on your phone or computer. Our goal is always to make you exactly what you want, so helping you make an informed choice is in all of our best interests.

New skin tones

When you order your silicone samples, please make a note on the order letting us know which colors or ethnicity you’d like to see, and what product you’re ultimately interested in purchasing. We have a wide selection of standard colors to choose from.

    I assume the image of the heart-shaped samples set out in two rows is bigger, but a shrunk version was used to fit comfortably among the text. Could you make the image on the page act as a thumbnail, by which I mean that clicking on it will bring up the larger image? My reason to ask is that this picture looks much better than the examples I cut and pasted into a similar image from the order page skin colour options. Especially the sugar and spice skin tones look much more saturated. On the order page, they looked a bit drab. (Yet more reason to not trust the computer screen but always order the actual sample before choosing a tone.) On a side note, I remember you suggested anal knots as gag gifts; how about a full layout of these heart-shaped samples – a bit like a box of chocolates – as Valentine gifts? They look cute enough for it.

      Hi Cal, I have updated the images so that the thumbnails open to the full-size images when you click on them. If someone wanted to get a chocolate box of little silicone hearts we would be happy to organize that.

        Thanks, it’s a lovely image and it gives a very clear picture of the different skin tones. I don’t personally know anyone to send a box of hearts to, but I really hope that someone who does will consider the suggestion.

      When we are making the style B available for purchase we’ll post a new News item and add pictures to the Feet page. Please check back from time to time to see when that happens. We have no specific ETA.
