Most companies make a color called "flesh."

Copper is a good one too. Just a tiny dab will work.

Make two small balls of red and yellow paste. Both should be bright, like primary colours. Mix amounts of the red and yellow to get bright orange. Add this orange a little at a time to white, and you will get skin colour. You may think it looks too orange but if you compare it to your own skin colour, like your inner forearm, it will be correct.

I use chestnut a little worked in makes a lovely flesh tone. I also use ivory with the tiniest bit of red too and that works well x
