This is my mix for a purple toned fleshtone.
The colours used are:
- Abaddon Black (GW)
- Catachan Green (GW – old colour)
- Liche Purple (GW – old colour)
- Basic Skintone (Vallejo)
- Light Flesh (Vallejo)
I created the basecoat by mixing liche purple and basic skintone, in a 1:4 mix.
After that I startd highlighting by adding basic
skintone to the mix, in several steps until I reached almost a pure basic skintone. After that I added some light flesh to the mix for the
highest highlights, about 50/50 mix. The shades were painted by adding a little bit of catachan green
to the basic mix, and a little extra liche purple. Then a final shadow
was created by adding just the slightest bit of black to the previous
