I use Wilton Copper for flesh. Use a tiny bit at first and keep adding. It can get too orange quickly. HTH

Well, I assume you're dong a Caucasian color? Then Flesh is what you're looking for.

Don't assume . . .

I also use the Wilton Copper. It actually says on the lid that it is also "flesh". Use sparingly because it doesn't take much to get a nice flesh color. After that it is kind of like an overuse of a bad tanning lotion. HA!

i use the wilton Ivory color...for darker tones you can add brown...for girly skin tones you can add a dot of pink with the ivory.

I use copper by wilton and it works really well...start with very little and then add until you're happy with the color. Good luck!

I use americolor copper. I adjust the color with red and brown if needed.
