I’ve been asked the question off and on about how I mix skin tone so here’s a 28 minute long video on that process. I use a basic starter recipe from Cody’s Coop which uses white base, yellow orange, red, and a touch of light blue. From this basic formula, I mix these four colors until I am satisfied with the skin tone. I mix a fairly large batch of a base dark skin tone, and from there, make a mix that is airbrush ready as well as lighter shades of the skin tone.

  1. Man, I really want those plastic bottles. How did you get them?

  2. I picked these up in Hong Kong, but I’m sure you can find them online somewhere. I tested these with some Mr Color paints before mixing just to make sure the paint didn’t eat away at the plastic. Normally, I only trust glass bottles.
