Painting Flesh Tones

As an artist, finding a flesh tone that is "just right" can be difficult! Today, Mrs. Burger's 2nd graders used a lot of perseverance, teamwork, and focus to mix paint to create flesh tones for their current self portrait project!

Need some tips on mixing paint to create a flesh tone?

-Start with white.

-Mix a little red with your white.

-Add a little yellow and a tad bit of blue.

-Continue adding and mixing these same colors until you create a skin tone!

Another option is to start with brown paint and add black or white as needed to create your skin tone!
