Here's some exciting news in the fast-paced, dog-eat-dog world of latex rubber sheeting. 4D Rubber has just come out with two new latex colors, Supatex Vibrant White and Semi-Trans Cloud Grey.
So why did 4D make another white and another grey?
White latex is not a true white; it's an off-white cream color that yellows very easily. Although the difference between the two whites is not so pronounced in this horrible photo I took, the Vibrant White is noticeably brighter than the standard white. In person, it really pops. The regular creamy white is nice, but it tends to look dingy after a while, especially if it's not contrasted with a dark color. Maybe with this new Vibrant White, white latex won't be such a frustrating "labor of love".

Onto the greys. You're already familiar with the Semi-Trans Grey, which is commonly referred to as "Semi-Trans Smoke" or just plain "Smoke" since it has no resemblance to any kind of grey. The new color, Semi-Trans Cloud Grey, is an actual cool grey. Look at the picture below to see the difference. I placed a Betty LaBamba label underneath the Cloud Grey to indicate the level of transparency.
