Don't Know Where Shadow & Highlights Go?

This video is demonstrating the use of opaque artist's oil paint on a metal miniature (do not use oil paint or mineral spirits on polymer clay). However, if you are not familiar with painting you may find this tutorial informative. The explanation of where to place shadows and highlights is very clear. Doll makers use transparent washes of color on polymer clay (using either acrylic or heat-set oil paints) so the color would be very subtle but the concept is the same. Hope you find this helpful!
