Very small icons on retina/HiDPI monitor

I'm working on a newish installation of Arch Linux and XFCE 4.14 on an older MacBook Pro with a Retina screen. Everything looks good except for icons (checkboxes, radio buttons, "Close" x's, menu item icons, &c.), which are too small. Here's an example picture. And below are the settings that seem relevant. Am I missing something or is this the best I can do? Thanks!

$ echo GDK_SCALE 
2                 # No apparent effect

0.5               # No apparent effect

$ xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Gtk/IconSizes 
gtk-menu=64,64:gtk-button=64,64:gtk-dialog=64,64 # No apparent effect

$ xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Gdk/WindowScalingFactor
1                 # Bumping this to 2 blows up the fonts but the buttons are still tiny

$ xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/theme

$ cat .Xresources # No apparent effect from this file
Xft.dpi: 192
Xft.autohint: 0
Xft.lcdfilter:  lcddefault
Xft.hintstyle:  hintfull
Xft.hinting: 1
Xft.antialias: 1
Xft.rgba: rgb

$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-monitor.conf
Section "Monitor"
	Identifier "Monitor0"
	Option     "DPI" "192 x 192"
