Hello, ATS. I once again seek your wisdom on something that I'm too lazy to search for myself.
I'm painting miniatures for a war game/RPG game and ran out of flesh (peach) colored paint. I can't really get out and get more. What color combinations are needed to make that peach color?
I have orange, a few shades of red, a few shades of yellow, pink, and white. Can I make it from those colors? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Skid, add white to your pink to make a very light pink then add a very very small amount of yellow to the pink and that will give you a peach shade. You can play around with that combination till you get just what you're looking for.

This, or the orange. You are essentially doing the same thing with either color.

Thanks for the link. I bookmarked it for future reference. I never thought about using green. That's interesting.

I thought orange would work but wasn't sure. Thanks.

you should put up a thread (or share the link if you already have) in the Member Art forum. In my past i have painted my fair share of little pewter warhammer pieces.

I'll do that when I'm done. I have a lot to do still.

LOL....i found my old D&D dice set. Somehow, from there they ended up in the door of my truck. My son found them a few weeks ago and asked what they were for. When i told him, he muttered "nerd" under his breath.

Oh, man. Kids. Nerds are cool people lol. I think he'd change his tune if he actually sat in for a game.

White,red, yellow with a touch of green will get you there. You need the green to kill the red or if you had blue you can mix that with yellow to make your green. You can make every color and color shade with red, yellow, blue, white and black. If you look at a color and it looks to yellow, simply combine the other two primary colors which would be a combination of red and blue in order to make violet/purple, purple would be the secondary color that kills the primary color yellow. I'm sure there's some Primary and Secondary color wheels/charts online that may also help you.

To do most my flesh tones in oil paint i use titanium white mixed with some med cadnium yellow, a touch of alizarin crimson. If you want a more olive complexion you add a smidge of sap green, maybe a touch of burnt umber.

Green and red are complementary colors, so when mixed together, they give you a neutral greyish-brown tone (if generally mixed with equal amounts). Just sayin'...that's why you would add a bit of green. People generally make flesh tones too warm when they need to be more neutral.
