just wondering what colors to use on the bobcat nose? thanks
I use a combination of flesh, orange and brown and mix until I get the color that most matches the original (I try to photograph the original as a reference) as there is a little variety in the color of noses. Some are more flesh colored, others lean more to the reddish-orange color>
Everyone has there own mix of colors
But what I like is to paint it orange then mist with with gill red very lightly only to slightly make it pinkish not red
Then mist again very lightly with a brown I lighten with white paint mixing in jar first to get what I want
The brown tones down the pink and orange just enough to get what I want
Then outline in black
I use lifetone hydromist colors
Play with your Colors as there is no right and wrong
I paint mine black then mix burnt sienna and flesh till I get the tone I want...then I leave a black line across the top of the nose and in the crease of the nose. I hand brush all my cat noses by just barely hitting the nose while working the brush back and forth...
I managed to mix flesh with gill red and make a pepto bismol color.
painted nose that color-
went over with thinned dark brown.
came out just right. whoodathunkit?
tanks for all the help
