1: THE SUCCESS OF FLESH COLOUR
Based on the age-old principle of fat over lean: a first layer of acrylic and, thereafter, the oil paint to work gradients and variations in skin tones.
Pébéo Extra Fine Acrylic paint for the delicacy of tone and its covering ability
Due to its siccative nature, Pébéo XL oil enables quick work in successive coats and bright colours that provide punch to the flesh colour.
2: THE ARTIST'S MIX FOR THE FLESH COLOUR
Artist Acrylics Cadmium orange 402 (10%), Cadmium yellow medium 301 (3%), Titanium white 118 (87%)
XL Oil - Titanium white 25, Light pink 27, 42 Red ochre, Primary cadmium yellow hue. 02, Dark cadmium red hue 06
3: DOUBLE GOLD IN COARSE SALT
A first layer of Studio Acrylic iridescent gold using a suitable solid colour and the very liquid second layer by mixing colour with water sprinkled with coarse salt. After drying, remove the salt with a cloth.
4: CRUMPLED PAPER TIP
Remember to save an adequate quantity of gold paint on the palette. Create dimension using a crumpled newspaper and dab the colour on the edges of the drawing for a cracking effect.
