    me personally, I start with a white undercoat, followed by bubonic brown, then start slowly blending a combination of bubonic brown into bleached bone and on the highest folds a VERY light and small highlight of skull white

    Or, alternatively you could base in bleached bone, wash with thinned brown ink, highlight with bleached bone up to skull white. Works for me.

    Like others have said, you'll probably want to start with a dark brown for the deepest crevices and work up through browns to bonewhite/bleached bone, and then do white for the very highest pieces. There are a decent number of ways you could do it, but the colors will pretty much be the same -- layers, wet blending, or washes can all work.
