    So I'm having problems with the various yellows I use. They're mostly too "clear" and whatever is under them bleeds through until I slap a million thin layers over it.
    Is there a good yellow base color to use for that for yellow paint? Thanks!

    If using acrylics, I usually add some foundation white in with the yellow for the base coat, then straight yellow over that when dried.
