Yes, this is the top-secret recipe for mixing skin tones! Shhh, don't tell anyone that skin is basically orange!! The hard part is that it is a very toned down or dulled down orange. Sometimes you might need a touch of blue or green (or any grayed color) to dull that orange sufficiently!

Haha...yes, Don. I tried a lot of orange skin tones before. LOL and they glow like an alien.

Ginger, thank you. Hope to see another piece from you too.
