The Skin Illustrator Flesh Tone Palette includes the palest of pink tones to the deepest rich yellows. The system contains skin tone colours with warming/cooling adjusters that are ideal for fine tuning a skin tone mix that’s a perfect match, or for creating a subtle bruising for close camera work.
Colours include Cedar Brown, Coral Adjuster, Lao 1, Lao 2, Natural 1, Natural 2, Olive Adjuster 2, Rice Paper, Rose Adjuster 2, Vein Tone
Rice Paper, the staple of the palette, can be used as a white colour to lighten a particular mix, or on its own to match the skin.
You can use Natural 1 & 2 as the basis for most Caucasian tones. These colours already lean to the yellow side of a natural tone so you can decide how much warmth or coolness to add.
If you need to warm the Naturals, add a little Coral Adjuster or Rose Adjuster II.
If you need to cool the tone, add a little Olive Adjuster I (liquids only) or Vein Tone to achieve a beige colour. Lao
1 & 2 will be the basis for your yellow undertone subjects.
Start with these colours and you can lighten the tone with a Rice Paper mix.
To make your colour more beige, add Vein Tone.
To make your colour more olive, add Olive Adjuster II, and if you want to add a touch of golden quality, use the Coral Adjuster.
Cedar Brown (a new colour) is a warm yellow-based brown that can add a tan to your actor or darken the 5 basic flesh tones.
All of the colour adjusters have been formulated to intermix with the flesh tones
