    One color will not do it for me, I will use from three to four color's on a tongue. It's all about layer's. Just get some good reference, and have at it. What color's work for me , might not with you. If I tell you to mix this color with that and your off a little on either one it will not come out for you as it would for me. Me personally, I never use a paint schedule or mix color's by the book. I just pull my reference out and have at it, and over time it will just come natural. When I went by schedules and set amount's I just could never get it.
