    Hi Jake,

    I use "wood duck yellow" from Lifetone/hydromist then darken the webs, joints, and back of the tarsus with a payne's grey.  Then I seal the foot and come back and do a wash over the entiire scale pattern with a dark brown watercolor (yeah the kinds the kids play with) add a drop of liquid soap and then you can rub it off again leaving the darker color in the scale pattern.

    Hope this helps,
    Jon~
