So I was ordering some supplies and I was just about to order some shell pink. Then out to the side I see coral. Damn! Can't decide again. So again I reach out to my brothers. The plan is another trans type of finish. Dark grain filler. If I go pink I want it paler than normal, so I'd mix it with white. Or just use coral, but then there is also my favorite color combo of white with a tort pg. What trans(semi opaque) color would you choose if I was building it for you?
