Tanned Skin Triad + RPP 19068 sunburn skin

Recommended Posts

I am working on a piece that I am using the tanned skin triad for the fleshtones and I just discovered amongst the mess I call a workbench that I have a pot of RPP 19068 sunburn skin. Since I am going for a ruddy, leathery look to the fleshtone (it's sailor), I thought I would add the sunburn skin for another dimension, but I am not sure if this will work and also, do I use this before the tanned shadow or after? Thoughts or suggestion requested, as I may use this on later projects (like a pirate vignette I have on the workbench).

I wouldn't recommend it as if I am recalling the Partha Paints correctly, they are awful... er, grainy... Might ruin any smoothness you're aiming for. Though that could add it's own effect...

 

I admit I tend to stick with what I know which is lighter colored flesh, so I'm not much for advice on actual colors to use for darker/sunburned skintones...

Reaper Pro Paints are compatible with Reaper Master Series Paints according to other posts. You might take a scrap figure (one that's going to take a bath, for example) and try mixes on it. I've considered mixing the three shades of tan skin, etc with the same amount of another color to get the base, highlight and shadow. The RPP 19069 Suntan is also a bit darker and redder than the RMS tans. Let us know how it works out, and post pictures!- Good luck, Wesley

I'm not sure I understand your reply, I was asking about mixing specific Reaper paints. Thanks for trying though. :poke:

I'll look into 19069, thanks and then give it all a try on a spare head; I was hoping to aviod this step, hence the OP, but I didn't know about your color suggestion so thanks.

Crap. Showing my age. RPP to me means Ral Partha Paints. Forgot that it can also stand for Reaper Pro Paints :blush:

Got this from Anne (Vaitalla) today:

 

"Hi! Sorry for the lag on response--paint department aggro. :;):

 

YES, absolutely you can use them together, and congrats for being the first to spot that they are compatible! I created Sunburn specifically to match a color that I used to use under my Tanned Skin to get the reddish undertones common in painting historical miniatures. I personally skip Tanned Shadow; I start with a base of the Sunburn and then the next layer is 50/50 Sunburn and Tanned. Then up to straight Tanned, and I just add Linen White from there for further highlights. ::):

P.s. Did I see you started a thread on this on the forum? Feel free to share my response on there."

 

I am going to give it a try this afternoon. Though I might tweek it abit to suit, we'll see. I will post pics ASAP
