Does any body know how to achieve skin color for a human figure?
I normally use wilton colors. Is there any special color especifically for skin tone?

If you're talking about Caucasian skin tone, a teeny tiny dot of pink and a teeny tiny dot of orange make a great colour. You can add yellow/brown/pink to get different shades of whatever you're looking for.

I have also used a really small amount of Wilton's copper color with good success.

Like a few others have already said...Wilton Copper. Mine actually says "Copper (light skin tone)". It works great for fondant. I haven't needed it for BC. HPH.

Yes, Wilton's copper is most popular for skin tone.
