Could someone please tell me how to obtain a realistic flesh tone color for my gumpaste /fondant? I tried just using Flesh color, but that doesn't look very realistic. This is for a baby. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much....
i always use the fleshtone color. just a tiny bit. in my buttercream, fondant, candy clay,etc. always.
I use wilton's 'peach' with a little bit of brown. You can see my baby cake in my photos. Good luck.
Thank you both so much! Now I have to figure out a way to make it softer as I kneeded in the color & let it sit over night. Even after kneeding it for about 30 minutes now, it is really not soft enough to put into the First Impressions mold! I wish I had just done it yesrerday.... I may just have to start over unless anyone knows something I can add to my fondant/gumpaste that will help with this problem....
I use candy melts for my baby mold. Works perfectly. Just a thought.
Knead in a bit of glycerin and/or shortening.
i would add more FONDANT. this will make it softer and more pliable. work a little shortening into this mixture also. after adding more fondant. knead it good. make sure there aren,t any creases in the amt. you are using to push into the mold . have used that mold. works great. put in freezer. let sat a bit. comes out really pretty. hth
Wilton's Copper is also called "fleshtone" on the container. That's what I use and it works perfectly.
Wilton's peach or copper work wonderfully as a fleshtone color.
I also use 'copper' it is perfect!
Thank you all so much for all your help & tips! I am going to do my baby tomorrow & hopefully when it is finished I can be as proud of mine as you all have been with yours! Then I'll see if I can post it....I may have to wait until my daughter comes over to do it for me! LOL
I followed everyone's tips here on CC and my Impressions Newborn Baby came out beautifully! Thank you so much Now to figure out how to get my picture posted. Again, thank you for all your help.
