I am fairly new to decorating and I really would like to start doing figures; however, everytime I try to make flesh colored MMF it just doesn't look right. I have used americolor fleshtone and I have tried Wilton ivory....Any help would be great! Thanks in advance

hi amj512, to make flesh tone... I use red,yellow and brown. Just a drop of each, knead in and add more if needed. I use americolor airbrush or gel if you have that... hope this helps therese

I use Wilton "Copper" and it works great. You don't need very much so add it a little at a time until you get the desired color.

I add a little bit of pink to the flesh tone color, and use very little of the flesh tone and you should have the right color!!!

I use Wilton copper, just the tiniest bit....depending on skin tone, just add more, or touches of brown, yellow or red until you get the right shade.
