Prisma Skin and Hair Chart

These are by no means the only color combos you can use for hair and skin, just a few of my suggestions. I am sure you can come up with better ones than these but I've been getting lot's of requests for combo's.  I hope these help, or at least give you a jumping off point : )
See how technical I was laying out the color swatches and that fancy font? lmbo!! And yes, I know some of them are missing the numbers. I decided to include those also after the first few so I apologize for that. Hopefully a Copic chart will follow shortly. I've been chasing my mojo all week, so if you see it, could you please tell it to come back home?

Stamps: (all are digi's)

The first girl is C.C. Designs Sugarplums Cherry Emma DIGI Download by Christine Wooden at All That Scraps.
The cute little girl I used as an Asian example is 
The Birthday Girl from Mami Doodles. If you've not seen this artists work you need to check her out!! I love her stuff and they have a unique look!
And lastly is the beautiful Sadie with Apples from the fabulous Mo' Manning.

Hi Dana. You are my inspiration for a long time. I saw so many of your videos, and just didn't have time to comment (always my baby sleep in my arms, when i look video). So today i like to thanks for all of them, for your gorgeous tutorials. I am begginer on pencils coloring, so you do a big help for me. I just got 48 colours Prisma pencils, and i hope i have colours what you just put up here. I really like the shine on your black colour. Absolutely gorgeous!
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

Wow! I'm just starting with Prismacolor pencils and I just found your blog today from one of your YouTube videos on coloring hair and skin. I'm so happy I found your blog. This chart is wonderful!!! Is there a way to download it in a larger size. I'm having a hard time reading all the pencil colors and numbers... even when I click to enlarge it. I recently bought the big set of pencils so I'm anxious to learn to use them well.

And I looked down your blog and discovered that I have been here before. :) I was here when I was looking around for color combos for my Prisma Pencils earlier this winter, and your tutorial are great and it has guided me well.

Thank you. ;)
