i know its been covered on previous threads but google failed me this time.

so......i'm going to make a dora cake and am not sure which colors to use for her face.

i'm guessing that i would start with ivory but then what?

I always add a touch of brown, pink or orange to my flesh tones.

Very very small amounts at a time.

I think Wilton's copper makes a great fleisch color! Start with small amounts.

I'm with Mensch... copper is a great base. If you don't have copper then try the teeniest amounts of orange and brown.

Hmmm that's interesting, I've not seen copper at my supply place. Do you guys order it on-line? It sounds a lot simpler then mixing 2 or 3 different colors.

i am a fan of that copper color for a lot of things, hadn't thought of it for flesh. thanks!

i am primarily of swedish descent and live in minnesota. if you want to do a scandinavian figure, i have a tip for you.
use vampire white as a base and add a drop of christmas red for every ten minutes the flesh has been exposed to sunlight.

if its a scandinavian on the beach, just use burgundy.
