I'm looking to mold a mermaid, but when I add my flesh tone to fondant, it comes out very orange. What is a good color to use when making people?

Thanks, Karen

Ivory works better. Just a drop does the trick usually.

I also like antique white.

I use plain white fondant, and apply with a cocktail stick the slightest amount of brown & pink colour paste - just the tiniest amount and work it from there. the two colours mixed ever so slightly give a perfect 'barbie doll' flesh like colouring. Good luck

Definately a small spot of Sugarflair Paprika in white or ivory sugarpaste. It's perfect for flesh

Well, Ivory with a bit of pink gets you a nice tone. Also, for a darker appearance, a touch of copper.

I tend to use Parpika colour, only a really small amount on a cocktail stick.

I successfully used Wilton's COPPER coloring - gives a light skin tone - it even states this on the top lid of the small container. Just a little at a time until you get the tone you want.
