root beer chartreuse

I need some help painting this color mainly what colors do I need to mix to get the rootbeer color or something similar. I'm using acrylic paints.

Unfortunately I am only familiar with lacquer based baits but I have to believe the layering is essentially the same.

White Base

Chartreuse Base

Medium Green over the Back

A brown or rootbeer over the Medium Green

Orange Chin or Belly

Green glitter (not too heavy) on body. Michaels Craftgoods has a green glitter spray but I do not know what it might do to acrylics. Test it first. I like the spray because I can get an even coat of the glitter throughout.

I use acrylics and follow Birdman's basic recipe......

White base

Chartreuse Base

Olive drab or Nato green on shoulders and back

Splatter with a medium to dark brown on shoulders and back.

Light orange belly

Red eyes.........

I use a very fine green polyflake that suspends in epoxy... I mix it with the epoxy before applying.............

Good luck............
