Painting Skin Tones (Part 3 – Caucasian)

Our final part of the skin tones painting series focuses on Caucasian tones. Again, Bryn Hill takes us through how to get these onto the table quickly.

 

For these, I used an old foundation paint I had laying around, I don’t think Citadel do an equivalent now ( I could be wrong). The easiest way to get around this would be to base with Bugmans Glow and then use Cadian Fleshtone to replace my step 1.
A)
1) Base coat with Tallarn Flesh foundation paint (Bugmans Glow then Cadian Fleshtone).

I hope these fairly quick and simple skin schemes help you out with your own models, remember experimentation often yields great results. Have fun!
