For nude color you can you Americolor "copper (fleshtone)".

For a nude color , I use a little bit of Wilton's copper colored gel until I get the color I want.

Wilton peach is also good. Start with a little and add more as nedded.

Are you covering them in fondant? If so, you can make marshmallow fondant with the multicolored mini ones. They mix and form a flesh color!

thank-you all for your quick responsesicon_smile.gif

I am covering them all in fondant. I'm confused on how to make the multicoloured ones then mix to form a flesh colour?!?
couldn't I just colour the fondant a flesh colour? If so I can use the colours that were suggested in the forum?
thank-you ladies gsjicon_smile.gif

You buy them multi colored! They are green, pink, light peach, light yellow and look like this:

When they melt, the resulting color is flesh. You shouldn't have to add any copper or peach to it!

OHHHHH, I SEE WHAT YOU'RE SAYING NOWicon_smile.gif I'VE NEVER MADE MY OWN FONDANT ONLY BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE THE TIME, BUT SINCE IT'S FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION, I SHOULD GIVE IT A TRY. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN SCARED OF IT NOT TURNING OUT BUT I WILL THIS TIME. THANK-YOU SO MUCHicon_smile.gif)))))GSJ

Hey i found that you need to be careful of copper and peach colors because they give sometimes more of a fake tan look to get true skin color use some ivory and one drop of peach
