Unread post painted lekku dont match painted skin
My Lekku dont match my skin. The paint it reading very true green on my skin and close to oola green on the headpiece. Do I need a primer or should I mix a separate paint with yellow base?

What kind of paint are you using, Ziya? I know greens can be a little unpredictable on different skin tones/surfaces sometimes. I use the RC or Temptu grey and they usually come out very similar on the lekku and my skin.

We've had the same problem with my wife's paint. We've been using Mehron Liquid (water based stuff) so far. One thing I can say is that most photos so far don't pick up the difference quite as strongly as the naked eye seems to. But I haven't really come up with a fix for it yet.

Sorry! I didn't get a notification that anyone had replied!

I'm using RC. I actually talked to them yesterday and today I am supposed to send reference pics to see if they are able to help.

I have only had this problem once with real creations even though my skin is much lighter than my lekku unpainted. I fixed it by stirring my paint to get all of the gunk off the bottom before I shook the bottle. It was amazing what a difference in color a little of that stuff makes. I hope that talking to RC helps you find a solution.
