    "Pewter" refiere a la aleacion. No la he encontrado la palabra como color. Pero podemos introducirla como color, como no? especialmente en el mundo de la moda, en vez de usar "silvery white".

    Hola, algunos traducen directamente Pewter como Plateado, no es técnicamente correcto pero creo que es más fácil de entender para casi todos.

    In my opinion pewter is more the color of lead (ploma) than silver.

    For those who doubt that it is a COLOR or HUE, I suggest searching for it.

    Here are links to two paint companies that sell pewter colored paint. This is only one example.

    Paint Color 7673 Pewter Cast - Sherwin-Williams

    pewter 2121-30 Paint - Benjamin Moore pewter Paint Color Details

    I previous posted another link that shows the various hues of pewter in other products such as clothing and autos.

    The fact that pewter is an object does not preclude it from being a color as well. Mahogany is a tree but it is also a color.

    Yeah Vicente, definitely pewter is more "plumb" than "silver".

    Colors derived from substantives, there are some derived from trees, Mahogany is "Caoba" in spanish, we have too the "Roble" color, you have in english a "Oak" color?

    Thanks for the lesson Salvadorm. I had heard of the caoba tree in Costa Rica but didn't realize that it is what we call a mahogany.

    Oak is a color mainly used to describe the color of simulated oak, as in paint, stains and veneers used on furniture.

    Salvadorm is absolutely right, Mahogany is Caoba. I remember when my parents bought my first drum set, it was made by Mahogany wood.

    Retomo este hilo de color para consultarles...¿qué entienden ustedes por color/tono STONE?

    A mi se me viene a la cabeza color piedra (traducción que cae de maduro) ¿podría ser gris? y aquí la duda, ¿es el único color de piedra que existe?
    Acaso no hay piedras negras, blancas, verdes, rojas??

    Convertir en cool lo elemental me resulta confunso e incomprensible. ¿A ustedes no?

    Hola Pim
    la verdad es que me molesta un poco esta tendencia a re denominar casi todos los colores. Primero empezamos por desterrrar el marrón y llamarlo chocolate. Después vino el nude, cuando toda la vida existió el color piel, beige, etc. Y ahora, stone?? Y qué color se supone que es el stone? Yo justamente colecciono piedras, y tengo un sin fin de colores de distintas piedras, o sea que para mí podría ser cualquier color. Una cosa es ser o querer ser cool y otra, es ser ambigüo. Qué opina el resto?

    Supongo que stone seria como el color de pewter, osea, seria de varios tonos, no solo de un color.

    It is all a marketing scheme. For example, this way a red Toyota will never look like a red Ford.
    BTW, to me stone mesns gray unless you specify otherwise the color of the stone.
