When your painting includes people, you want to get a good flesh tone color on the skin, which is not easy to do with bright colored paint pens.
I’ve had a lot of people write, asking if I was going to get Tan Poscas on our website. Poscas don’t come in Tan. But here’s a great solution to getting a good flesh tone color for skin:
The pens are made in Japan, and until recently, the labels have been written in Japanese, so the color I had been using all along for flesh tones, I thought was Tan. Now that the pens come in English, I realize that what I thought was Tan was really Light Orange!
So, for flesh tones you can use Light Orange , it is really like a tan-peachy color. Blend it with Brown and it works great. Sometimes I add White, and even a little Pink, to get just the right shade. I hope this helps…..
