    How to get a warm pinkish hue to the skin on thin-furred areas like inner ears, face, and butt? Especially for light colored or albino animals. I’m assuming painting the form, ear liners etc so it shows though the thinner skin there. Do you do pink, red..? Or is there a better way I haven’t heard of?

    I use flesh color , I also use pro 1 hide paste, get yourself some water base flesh and bright flesh paint , then tint your hide paste with it till you get the color your looking for . It works great all over , ears and all .

    I've used food coloring in my hide paste

    Oh of course! don’t know how I didn’t think of coloring the hide paste, it’s opaque and right up against the skin. Duh. Thank you!

    LordRusty If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Red Flocking mixed into Pro-1 Hide Paste works great!
