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.
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......
Olive drab or Nato green on shoulders and back
Splatter with a medium to dark brown on shoulders and back.
Light orange belly
I use a very fine green polyflake that suspends in epoxy... I mix it with the epoxy before applying.............
