This is a picture of my daughter. Does anyone know how to get her color? This pic is a little dark, she’s a little lighter in person. And if anyone knows of a kit that reminds you of her, please let me know.
Lighter skin I always start with flesh color 8 or 7 depending how light I want the baby.
She has a very light olive complexion… I’d get that by skipping the burnt umber?
I should have mentioned that I’m using air dry acrylics that came from Michael’s, so I have basic colors and a few extra to mix my own colors.
Oh sorry I have no clue about air dry. I use heat set paints. I would assume they work the same though without burnt umber the skin would be a lot lighter color. I would go with flesh 8 to start, do your molting then go back over with 8 until she is the color you like.
Following . She is really pretty .
You need to experiment. Nobody can tell you from computer screen, and every kit is different colour to start with, so it will have to be painted with different colours. If i only had basic colours, I would start with mixing white with just a tiny bit of ochre, red, burnt umber until I would get pale skin colour that I am happy with. Then I would paint the kit and see what more it needs. Once you have the base coat you need to compare it to your daughter’s skin and decide if it needs to be bit more pink, or yellow or whatever. You need to do several layers and each tweak the tone the way you feel it needs.
Ohhhhh, thank you, @DDDolly! This is a good starting point. She’s white with a little southeast Asian influence, so her complexion is quite different and I didn’t really know where to start… I can see where my mistake came from now. My yellow was too yellow. Yellow ochre or orange would be a way better starting point. Thanks for your help!
What kit are you using?
I’m working on Megan right now, @ludmila. I got a little too creative with her coloring the other day and had to strip her, so now I’m starting again. It’s okay, I can get some panpastel practice on her.
I have two kits (Aloenka and Gabriella) that I really want to do this color or darker on, so I’m trying to get together a formula for this color and practice first.
I have not done any of these kits so i do not know what is the color of the vinyl. From what your daughter’s skin color looks on my computer you need to get the base as pale and neutral as possible before you start adding too much color.
Thanks for your help, @anon72659292. Hope to make pretty babies like yours some day.
Hi there, @DDDolly. I always thought she had just yellow undertones, but now that you mention it she has some pink in there too. It’s so hard to figure this out with her because I look at her so much that I’m becoming color blind. Her hair is definitely a darker medium brown with golden highlights that didn’t really come through in pics.
The panpastels. Yes, I’ve been playing with them all night. I just now decided to be a responsible adult and peel myself away from them to go to bed… so I can lay here playing on my phone instead of sleeping, I guess. Boy am I going to pay for this tomorrow!
