Painting "Middle-Eastern" Faces & Hands

For my Turks, Arabs and Sikhs I have settled on a Three layer technique that seems to look the best to me.
(I usually prime these figures with Tamiya Dark Earth or Dark Yellow spray paint)
1. GW Foundation Paints Tallarn Flesh (a sort of Dark pink) is generously applied.
2. Thoroughly coated with GW Ogryn Flesh (a dark brown) wash.
3. Dry brush with GW Bronzed Flesh; More for Turks, less for Arabs and Indians.

To me the results look better than any of the other color combinations I've tried. You can see this approach used on the Turkish Bombers I featured in an earlier post.
