Changing Color in a Cross Stitch

I am working on this cross stitch pattern and I need to change the colors in the hand to that of an African-American Baby. I could really use your help.

Go for 2-4 shades lighter than the color you are using for skintone.

Count how many different shades there currently are in the cross stitch, and what colors they are. then, choose the appropriate color-tone that you want to use, and match the different shades to the ones that are listed on the chart. Exp: If there are four different shades: white, light tan, med tan, and dark tan; you might want to use med tan(or dark), light brown( or med), med brown(or dark), and dark brown(or black), depending on the shading that is used. Also, if you want a really unique look, try using one strand of a color with another, to get a very realistic shading effect. it looks amazing.
