Yes, AiP does provide the skins, but Bea will work with skins you provide her too (at least she did when I asked). This also helps cut the costs if you can source a good deal on a skin. Just yesterday I picked up a 14x55" matte alligator in grade 2, in a butterscotch color. Magnificent. I need something wider though for something else and would prefer a dark chocolate.
Im working on a few things in exotics - RJMan gave me a vintage sterling flask that I want to recover in kelly green croc, Im making an iPad case out of the butterscotch matte croc, and I want to do a suite of desk accessories as well. If I can get the giant piece of skin, I want to make a sleeve for my MacBook Pro as well.
Do you have a link for that Kinnamon place?
