Crease color for biracial babies?

Post by jubileejulie »

I am painting a light skinned AA or bi racial baby. I am not sure whether to use my crease color I would use on my Caucasian babies or more of a color I would use on a darker skinned AA baby or somewhere in between. Anyone have any suggestions?

I had to think about this Jubilee.
Since I watch our little Silas 4 days a week I can tell you that through this Nana's eyes his light AA skin tones are luscious and wonderfully blended. His creases are not dominate, never have been.
I'd use the same as you do for Caucasian and perhaps add a touch of brown. Not much however, otherwise it looks like dirt marks.
I think some us too dark and though we think we need to do them a darker color than their skin tones they really just need another layer or two of just flesh tones.

Here's Silas....see his creases on his face and arms aren't dark.

I hope this helps.

For my lighter skinned ethnic babies I still use some burnt umber mixed in with the red shade. I put it in crease with small brush and then use a dry brush to spread it evenly. I then use a sponge to wipe the area outside in case any paint got outside. I usually use several layers for the darker ethnic skin tones and may add some black in as well. I just stop when I like the look....

My friend is from the islands . I showed her my last AA baby and she said it was wrong to do darker creases on them. She tells me that when newborn no creases show at all . I have stopped doing it. Hope this helps
