So I made Tinkerbell out of a Gumpaste Fondant Blend. (2 parts gumpaste 1 part fondant just for a slight flesh tone)

She looked fine when I made her but after she dried the arms turned a whitish color like she had a diease.

I made 2 other figures which look fine... But they where a Black and Spanish fairy so to get the skin tone I had to add more fondant... Maybe more like 1 to 1.

Do you think that was my problem and is there any way to fix poor tinkerbell?

I wonder if it isn't the pink coloring. Pink and purple fondant will fade out sometimes. Pink usually bleaches out of fades to white, while purple will fade blue or gray.

Was the piece near sunlight or under a florescent light?

Nope I have the darkest apartment ever.
I was working with a lamp with no direct light
and it dried overnight in the dark
