E-bay has doll "touch up" paint and other flesh tones available, but does anyone know the shade or hue that palmos and dye tubes come in?

I bought some flesh paint from bobbovent1 on ebay and it is a nice flat color to cover dye tubes. You might check him out .

I had an idea of going to a hardware store and having them match up my hand color to a flat paint. That way, its exact.

Go to a hobby store that specializes in military models. They usually have several types of flesh coloured paint in a range of hues.

Mannequin paint works very well also if you can find it

Forget paint... Use fabric bandaids! It looks great and adds a bit of extra "grip" so you feel more comfortable about not dropping it!

I have been using it on all of my "flesh colored" props for years and absolutely love it!


P.S. I usually cut away the actual "bandage" part of the bandaid and just use the sticky part of it. Works great!

Walmart has some different shades of flesh-colored, acrylic paints in the craft department.

I've been using an acrylic paint called "skintone" (Hobby Lobby) - but I really like the Bandaid idea. I'm going to give that a try. Thanks Lyndel.
