It's the same thing. To get flesh colored clay add Ivory color or ou can use light pink with a small amount of brown. HTH

I used the modeling chocolate made with Wilton's disks for the head on my "Stewie" cake. I mixed 80% white chocolate with about 10% pink, 5% yellow and 5% orange (more or less). I did this while melting the chocolate (just prior to adding the syrup), and basically adjusted the color as I went along by adding more of the pink or orange. You can also make a batch of each color (ivory, yellow, pink and orange) and mix them together to get your desired color. HTH!
