I use Wilton's Copper for skin tone. Just a little a time until I get the desired shade. Too much and it will look like, well...copper! icon_lol.gif

I use the Paprika colour very little to get the pinkish skin tone.

I also use the Wilton copper, but I add just a tiny bit of golden yellow and brown. I find the copper, by itself, has kind of a pink undertone and the yellow and brown kind of counteract that.

I used very small leftover pieces of orange and pink fondant (originally dyed with the respective AmeriColor) to knead into white fondant to get the skin tone of the Pirate in my pics. So Iâd think a tiny amount of the pink and orange dye directly into the MMF would work as well. TINY is the keyword though!

Tiptop57 - I was wondering the same question!

I went to a class once and the teacher said to use ivory for the skin tone. Yeah, I'm Mexican so my baby was a golden tan icon_wink.gif thanks to a touch of brown - until I got the shade I wanted.
