Summary

Before I put paint down on a model I actually like, I wanted to try and get skin down. With the limited pallet I had available I knew it might be a little difficult, but what’s a hobby with not challenges? At first I tried to create a mix of Vellejo Bone White and Skin Shade, but the mixture and subsequent layers turned out chalky.

So I decided to then try a mixture of Bronzed Flesh and Bone White. I know the pictures above make it look like something out of The Simpsons, but believe me when I say that’s just my dumb phone camera. The Eldessa, Necromancer image (linked above) uses the same process and that looks much more akin to reality.

What I Learned/What I’d Do Differently

With a loittle more experience under my belt, I spent a few bucks and got some more skin tone paints. Big help that. This is also one of the projects where I figured out a more intuitive feel for how much to thin various paints for what I wanted done.
