I am very new to bear making this is only my second attempt so I,m still very much a no is and I have just finished this bear in chocolate brown and I wanted to add some detail, like lighter areas around the eyes to make them stand out a little but I don’t know what to use, I,v heard people mention acrylic paint which I have but how do you mix it and what consistency and also how to apply it. I have some scraps to experiment with. He actually looks much darker than his photo shows

I have never used paints.  I use Copic markers.  You can either use them with an airbrush or you can just directly apply them.  You can also dilute the colour with a colourless blender.
