Bone coloured cloth: Transition from bone to cloth help!

Greetings all.

I am currently in the process of designing a new colour scheme for some druchii spearmen I plan to paint up and I have chosen to do their cloth a yellowish bone colour.

But unfortunetly I am having trouble making the transition from painting actual bone to painting it on cloth. The main problem is the shading. I find D mud works well with painting bone for it seeps into all the bone joints but when painting cloth the depth of the colour really looks out of place when painting cloth. Its just to dark and the colour has too little(If any) yellow to mix in with the main colour (Even after a Sephia glaze).

Here's my bone scheme.

Base: Bubonic Brown/Bleach bone
Wash: D Mud
Glaze: Gryhonnie sephia
Highlight with base again
Add more Bleach Bone Highlight
Pure Bleach bone Highlight
Lastly Bleach bone/Skull white on the very edges and tips.

Could anyone please help me with a good shade wash I could do without having the dark intensity of D mud. But it must be a wash shade since I don't want to have to do multiple shading levels with my basic core troops.

cheers.

Only with gryphonnie sephia thus far (Still too dark a shade unfortunetly). I haven't tried mixing with a watered down paint though. I'm just not sure if they will mix well since the washes are very translucent.

cheers.

I actually have great success with offwhite clothe coloring using devlan mud as a wash. I use some reaper master series paints, but otherwise I feel I get a very good transition. I start with khemri brown foundation paint, then wash with devlan mud. I then use reaper's aged bone followed by a layer of polished bone. I then add a final few accents in reaper's linen white which is an offwhite shade. It looks really nice.

I am, do it often. Wash improves texture of paint, and tints it a bit. If you get the ratio right it can work pretty well.
