I've been doing a lot of 4 color process printing the last year and have the system down fairly well. A lot of what I'm doing is from photographs of people and I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on getting more accurate skin tones? Trying to avoid skin that is overly yellow, red or green without making everything too thin and light. Any thoughts? Has anyone ever tried substituting an ink color closer to the flesh tone for the yellow?
Here's a basic outline of my system as a starting point. Using manual press (yes keeping the registration super tight) and water based system (jacquard process color inks) and good transparencies and exposure (sadly not metal halide yet but still getting good clean halftones). Generally using 305 mesh with between 40 - 55lpi depending on the image.
