thanks for the replies. i mixed some green and yellow and it looks ok i guess but not what i was looking for. i found some citrus green and banana yellow and they turned out perfect to what i was looking for. thanks again for all the help.

Yeah, a little too much green and you got Greentreuse. I think most guys use neon yellow and consider that chartreuse. Maybe it isn't, but I like it better because it's brighter.

Paint a light yellow base and then you paint a very thinned green over that. You can get a very sick "shining through" colour by doing this. Experiment!

I use apple barrel/Sunflower over pearl base coat then as mentioned a light light mist of light green.apple barrel also has a brite brite yellow that is pretty close out of the bottle.

to those that use the apple barrel paints at what ratio do you mix paint to water to air brush those paints. i always seem to either get it too thin or too thick. i can keep trying to get it right but sure would be easier if someone alrady knows and thanks for all the replies.
