I am using Delta Ceramcoat for my flesh tones. I can't find flesh tones from Testors, any suggestions on where to get flesh tone colors from Testors?

And should I use Testors Dull Cote to finish my figure?

Model Master acryl has a base color and 3 pigments. Use empty bottles and mix different ratios for different tones. I have about 6 right now. I think these are really good.

Im about to buy several of each to mix full bottles.

are you using enamel or acrylic paints? you need to use acrylic not enamel as enamel will remain sticky. if you're already using acrylic, then did you wash the figure before painting? very important step.

here are some helpful tutorials:

as for what brands - Testor's Model Masters (acrylic version), Citadel and Vallejo Game Colors are a few of the most popular brands of paint used in customizing.

hope this all helps.

Yes! Then we'd always know exactly what shade they are!

I use Citadel paints and they seem to work very well. One way to cut down on the sticky clumpyness of the flesh tones is to use multiple watered down coats of it. I t always works for me this way

Both these were done with the multy watered coating method
