I have hs that I've been trying to paint so as to have a dirty blond hair. I have black, raw sienna, tapioca, and a beige color at my disposal. They are all basic acrylic paints from an art store. Do you have any tips about paint proportions and the likes? Thanks.


all fixed.

Spidey , I should use a pale tan / khaki with some white added : if you add too much yellow it looks weird. Blonds don't have yellow hair , but straw coloured hair. Best to look at some pics and try to match them.
You say you have beige : add a little white to that and see what it looks like : test it on a piece of paper first.

One quick thing - when I'm painting a blond I use burnt sienna and add yellow till it gets to the desired color then add some black. A very little bit at that. The black sort of nutralizes the yellow and after adding it you may need to add more yellow. Like Tony said blonde is really not yellow but a straw color.
