    Hi Nap,

    For female flesh tone for example: ivory, peaches & cream and porcelain.

    Ivory skin tone can be pink, peach, golden and even bluish tone.depend upon on the complexion.
    White + ochre + venetian red + umber
    White + ochre + venetian red + umber + ultramarine
    White + ochre + venetian red + prussian blue

    Peaches and cream skin tone is smooth, pale and slightly light pink cheeks.
    white + naples yellow + crimson
    White + yellow ochre + venetian red
    Add some burnt sienna for shadow.

    Porcelain skin tone is flawless and unblemished. have more pink bases than yellow bases.
    The skin tone is popular in Asian women, especially Korean.
    White + crimson + naples yellow + viridian + burnt umber for shadow

    The above colour combination will produce any desired flesh tone.

    Cheers,

    Felix

    Excellent, what we all need, and great for beginners who I am trying to encourage to use oils to avoid those acrylic tide marks. entered now into vital references, pin it on the wall.

    Many Thanks

    Hello Felix,
    Do you have any uniform specific color mixes that you can share? The late Bob Knee wrote an article years ago on 'Colors of the Napoleonic Era' for one of the old now-defunct publications. It was using oil paints.
    All the best,
    Jay
