Hello Chief, welcome aboard! We covered a bit on the OD thing here a little while ago. (click below) As far as which is "best"...all a matter of opinion to me. I use Model Master Acrylics. I don't use enamals much anymore. Wait to see more replies to this too. Oils for faces or any flesh in general is actually a mix of a couple of colors. These are the basics used. Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Raw Umber, Flake White, Cadmium Red, and Cadmium Yellow.


Hope this helps a bit.
