I do a lot of painting with bleached bone. What I find works is to first was the area with watered down brown ink (just to darken the color a bit). Then highlight with bleached bone again, up to skull white. This works for me quite nicely.
I like the suggestion in the link above about using vallejo model color ivory as a highlight to the bone. I would start with a light brown base as well and work up through the ivory - reserving the white for only the lightest of highlight areas. This should give you a nice warm feel to it.
