I use green and a touch of brown, you can adjust the tone with gray and white if needed.

Also try irridescent gold, yellow, or copper with a touch of black.

Leaf green and black...use a couple drops at a time of black till you get the shade you're looking for.

You know...........I ended up liking the color when combining Pearl Lime and a couple of drops of black. Closer to what I am looking for right now.
Thanks for all the help.............I'll be using those mixtures soon as well.

I purchased a pre-mixed color from Smith Paints, taxidermy series, that satisfied my need for olive (forgot the color name). You might give them a call to see what they have (Website too). Their paints seem a lot easier to use.

Try pearl copper with a bit of pearl green and a drop of black.
