I love these paint and the effect they give but really struggle to achieve a flesh tone ! Anyone have any tips on what ones mix well to get a skin colour?

skin tone
by: Jacqui

It depends what skin tone you are looking for but one way is to go to Home Depot, choose the flesh color you are looking for and then ask the counter person what tints are used to achieve it.

If it's creamy porcelain you want then you need a white base, some pink and a little yellow - if you want to add depth try a drop of brown into the mixture - brown is all the primary colors mixed together - so knowing that, you can add each primary drop by drop to achieve different undertones - some people have pink undertones, yellow, even green (olive tones) so mix away, my friend!

How to successfully mix pebeo vitrea paint colors?
by: JenNW

Could someone tell me how to mix these paints? Do you mix them like you would acrylic paints, to get other colors? Or are you supposed to layer them... more like watercolors? Please help. All I get is muddy colors when I try --- and I know my color wheel :) So that's not the problem.

Help? Thank you!
