I am trying to get the perfect baby color for my new baby mold but just can't figure it out .. most of them come out looking way to pale .. I have all the americolor colors .. does anyone have the perfect formula for a realistic fake baby?

I use Wilton colors (flesh and brown), but looking at the Americolor chart, I think that using Ivory and and a touch of Chocolate Brown would work.

Always start with very little color so you don't get it too dark, then build up to the perfect color. After that you'll need to dust the baby to give it more color and dimension. The tutorial on CC is perfect!

This is how one of my babies turned out...check if you like the color.

I used the Wilton colors "flesh" and "brown".

For Americolor, I think that using Ivory and and Chocolate Brown would work.

I use more more of the lighter color, then a touch of the darker color.

Good luck!
