Burnt umber washes can make her more “tan”. IF you’re using the primary method, you can do more rounds of red yellow and blue. I also use a lime green wash to add depth to the skin

Flesh 02

1 Like

Hello thank you both for youre advice at the moment i don’t have flesh 02 !
And i started with usually mottling veins creases after that i already done 2 burnt umber 1 brown brown
I started out with no flesh layer i try most off the time with the mottling try to get the right tone
Also i did one black layer but at this point i find it difficult because sometimes it can turn out in not a pretty equal color

Do you have the colors to do a round of primary color washes? ( Red , yellow, blue)

Hello Nikki yes i have but witch color red and yellow and blue ?
I got the/ bountifulbaby red/ pyrolle red 02/ and lip blush nail
Yellow ochre / yellow
Vein blue / Phytallo blue 03/ Ultra marine blue
To many colors off each :slight_smile:

@ineke1957 I use genesis red, genesis yellow and ultra marine blue.
But… I know others that use yellow ochre and any shade of red… ( not the lip nail because it’s a premix and isn’t true red)

Well I dont do primary layers really. I do not use the lighter yellow.
So personally I would do mottle layers of darker red (lip is fine), Utra marine blue with a bit of vein mixed in, and ochre - then bake.

Then washes of burnt umber. Unless your kit is an orangish tint at the point, then I would add a tiny bit of ultramarine blue to the umber to decrease the orange and do some washes - then bake.

I hope that helps, I just add paint here and there with what ever color I think it needs. So I am not very good and saying how to do it. lol

I also want to mention that I have not gotten a very dark baby ever so my advice might not even matter… lol (I think I paint too thin for it)

Used to, when I wasn’t even trying I would get the most beautiful shades of brown babies. But, now that I put so much thought into how I paint, I can only get to a biracial color at most. Idk, I’m just a weird painter I guess.
