Hi Ladies, im hoping someone can help me with a skin tone color. I usually use flesh #8 for my babies but I wanted to change the skin tone on my next baby to a slightly tanned tone like in this pic. What color should I use?
I use air dry but I think a lot of ladies use umber washes to darken the tone. Or I have already mixed a little umber into my fleshtone.
Ok…thank you for responding. I truly appreciate the help
I use Flesh also as a base…but I use washes to warm up the skin tones…sometimes umber, or golden brownish…or salmon…just depending on what I am striving for!
Great! Thank you
When I did burnt umber washes over my flesh 08 base it warmed up my baby beautifully!
Im gonna give that a try Thank you
Burnt umber is a good one, I also like yellow ochre to warm up a skin tone
Burnt umber for sure.
Start with a Flesh 07 wash or two. Then alternate cool and warm color mottle layers. Then wash with raw sienna or yellow ochre, pyrrole red 02, and burnt umber. Use a warm deep blush color like Q.crimson. I get this skin tone almost every time and have to work hard to occasionally avoid it Here are some of my babies. I did a step-by-step WIP thread for Reese and Grayson.
Oh wow, thank you so much!!
Beautiful!!! Thank you so much
I use primary washes and burnt umber really makes my babies come alive. It also gives my babies that beautiful skin tone your looking for.
So cute, Thank you so much
