AK Interactive Flesh and Skin Colors Paint Review
|Date of Review||June 2014||Manufacturer||AK Interactive|

|Skill Level||Basic||MSRP (USD)||$29.99|
AK Interactive has been producing a very wide range of paints and weathering products over the last several years targeted to the armored fighting vehicle and figure modelers. Here is a revision of one of those sets with six colors targeted for lighter skin toned subjects.
This set contains six 17ml bottles of paint with a full range of skin colors from highlight to shadow. The colors in this set include:
- Base Flesh
- Light Flesh
- Highlight Flesh
- Shadow Flesh
- Dark Shadow Flesh
- Cheekbone Glaze
The formulation of this set is a thicker viscosity tailored for good coverage using a paint brush though it can be airbrushed, if desired, using thinner. What is nice about a set like this is that this supply will likely paint a company or more of scale soldiers before you need to think about obtaining replacements. It would be nice to see a similar set offered for darker skin tones subjects as well.
The MSRP in the US for this set is $29.99 or around $5.00 USD per bottle. Be aware that there are a few online retailers in the US charging $35.00 or more for this same set, so please shop around.
My sincere thanks to Stevens International for this review sample!
