Sorry if this has been asked previously, but I'm building several Bravo 6 figures (Vietnam) and obviously some of them are African-American. There seems to be a lack of instructional videos/posts (at least that I can find) on how to paint skin tone. What are your recommendations on how to paint these figures using AMMO / Vallejo colors?

Many thanks!

Tom
