I think everyone knows what I meant, I just did not want to offend someone because it has happened to me before. I think I wil just say darky and lighter darky to stop all the confusion.



Fo Sho lol, the triads rock in my opinion.

Well, TMB was just being sarcastic in the other thread. And my post here wasn't really serious, just saying how the politically-correct term for black people is less correct than calling them black people.

You're all black in my book, homies

But yeah, that's good that they have those 3-part paint sets, takes the guess-work out of mixing flesh.

Ah, but what if a white family had been living in South Africa for generations, and considered themselves African, and moved to the United States. If an American saw them, would they describe them as African Americans? No.

Inversely, if a black family had been living in Britain for generations, and considered themselves British, and moved to the United States. If an American saw them, would they describe them as African Americans? Yes.

Not sure I fully understand the question, when you say black and white figures you mean African American skin and Caucasian skin. (proper terms I think)

For dark skin Reaper Masters Paint has triads that have the base, wash, and dry brush colors.
Dark Shadow
Dark Skin
Dark Highlight

For medium skin they have:
Tanned Shadow
Tanned Skin
Tanned Highlight

And For light skin:

Fair Shadow
Fair Skin
Fair Highlight

Here's the link so you can see all these colors. Hope I helped answer your question.
