So I decided to do some elementals real quick. I gave them base coat of matte medium - primer for earth, because base coat.
Then I attempted the yellow-ning. First it looked good, so I tried to add a little more, mixed with orange tint, and ugh.
I think I'd recommend doing outsides red, and then use a yellow ink w/medium as "dry" brush to pick out details. It won't look right, but a lot of the translucents really seem to be table ready.
