Color consistency?

Color consistency?
I'm interested in recoloring images. The following is the original: [Image: 27wu5w6.jpg]

And this is the edit so that the girl on the right isn't wearing gloves (bottom left hand): [Image: 2uxvhv5.jpg]

Using the clone stamp tool on her upper arm for the normal and shaded skin color, I edited the glove but the coloring on her hand looks like a homogeneous blob that stands out.

Anyone have any tips or other methods for how I can get the coloring more accurate?

Thank you, but I'm not clear where to go from here. When I use the clone-stamp tool with this, it gives a transparent orange lighting now.

RE: Color consistency?
Several ways and it all depends on the image. If the clone tool is producing 'blobby' then look at the brush shape you are using. Probably the spacing is set too high. The smallest fuzzy brush has a default spacing of five. Try that or even reduce that spacing.
Another way.
For that image you could select a suitable area. Copy to the clipboard and use that as a pattern to fill selections.
If (when) you get a join showing use the smudge tool or (more ambitious) the resynthesizer/ heal selection plugins.

You can see a join on the middle finger that needs fixing. Not very evident on this image but there is a little bit of shading, right side of the forearm is a little darker than the rest. Always look out for this, sometimes shading can be faked in with the dodge/burn tool. Again use a fuzzy brush of appropriate size.
