This range of flesh tone colours can be used on any subject, this is perfect for those learning about skin tones and for professional artists.
These colours are available to buy singularly (please click on the links below to view these as separate items) or as part of a set - Steve Driscol's Flesh Tone Set.
There are five different flesh tones in this range,
Dull Tan Flesh,
and Olive Flesh.
The other five colours in the range (Driscoll's Shade Additive, Smoke, Kelly Green, Bright Red & Violet) are provided as additives for blending with the base flesh tones.
Make yourself a comparison chart by spraying the flesh tone colours light to dark and comparing them to your reference photo to select the right flesh tone. Airbrush the base tones in this colour, then add a few drops of the Bright Red the set as the warm additive for the warm tones. Then go back to the base colour with a few drops Driscoll’s Shade Additive to do the shaded areas. There’s also Transparent Smoke in the set for darker shading.
Also available are Steve Driscoll's instructional DVD's Basic Portrait Techniques and Advanced Portrait Techniques.

Using the same formulation as the opaque Com-Art colours, the transparents are non-fading, pigmented colours, which can be intermixed with the opaques or sprayed over the top for glazing.
Com-Art colours are excellent for these applications:
- Fine Art
- Resin-cast figure model painting
- Craft applications like scrapbooking
Professional artists choose Com-Art colours because of their museum-quality lightfast longevity. They dry instantly to a matte finish, which is especially good for precise colour matching. Plus, opaque and transparent colours can be intermixed without any colour bleeding or show-through problems. Com-Art colours offer tremendous versatility, superior atomisation and breathtaking results.
