    Thanks Marc, Thanks Nap, Thanks Reptor
    Nap fleshtones are hard to list as most of the painting is build ups of washes. Started though with a base of brown sand, my shadows are muddy brown, blackened brown, worn navy, all of the scale 75 flesh paints and all of the Andrea flesh paints. I use a reaper flesh wash and clotted red. Medium flesh, and the scale 75 and Andrea paints for mid tones and same for the lights. Hard to describe as i just try to get the feel for what the piece needs. Most every paint used is very thin watered down and built up to blend. I also used flesh color oil paint mixed with a bit of white over the dry acrylics. Lightly brushed in ,very little paint on the brush as I brushed off most of it before I work on the bust. Hope this might help someone.
