  • Flesh Tones

    I'm a novice caricture carver, using Ceramacoate paints for finishing my work. I have used 'Flesh Tone' and 'Tomatoe Spice' shades for the flesh colors. They work o.k. but all of the carictures are looking the same. Can anyone tell me how to achieve flesh tones for Afro-,Native-,Hispanic-, and Anglo Americans? Your help would be appreciated..Nelson G ???

    If you are using washes and not applying the paint as a solid color, there are a couple things you might try.

    First, apply a pre-wash over the entire carving using burnt umber or burnt sienna. Let it dry a little and then apply your flesh and rouge over that.

    Secondly, you only mentioned one red. If that is all you have, you can vary the value by adding a tiny bit of white or black.

      I've never found a flesh tone that I like right out of the bottle. For most, I mix burnt umber into it - more or less, depending on the skin color I'm trying to achieve.

        Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

        I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

        This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

        I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

        Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

        How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

        I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

        First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
