Straight-up Wilton copper works very well. Just add a very little bit at a time (I do it with a toothpick to control myself a bit icon_smile.gif ). HTH!

i also use copper and a tiny tiny bit. Sometimes I add a speck of ivory depending what I'm going for....

since i'm just starting out i dont have any of the good colors lol but with a little playing and lots of different gels, i managed to get the color i was after. dont ask me how, but pink, gray, yellow, and more white managed to get me what i needed. i knew i should have paid more attention in art class. thanks for the help though. i'll keep the copper in mind the next time i'm supply hunting.

My husband suggested that I add just a little bit of blue to my flesh color and it made a huge difference. I think the grey you added may have done the same thing.

for future, a little bit of ivory and pink, which i have in my basics set, works great too.
