I decided to try my hand at mixing my flesh paints, and practiced on some Drukhari Wyches and Hellions to get a pale Elf skin colour. I think it's worked quite well. I used Bugman's glow, and mixed in more and more Pallid Wych Flesh to make it brighter as I went.
I have not used any of my shade paint, but rather started with a base coat that would act as the shade (in this case, Bugman's glow). This is because female miniatures, especially ones based on Elves, are made very smooth, with little in the way of deep shadows or recesses save for areas like the fingers and toes. I can't speak for shade inks made by other companies such as Vallejo, but I do know Citadel's shade inks are made to run into recesses and collect there, so the end result on a model like this would be too dark for my liking.
