Can anyone suggestions on what colour to use to make indian skin tone.  So far i have tried light brown with dark brown and a little chocolate fondant and to be honest it looks like a terra cotta clay colour.....I dont want to insult my client......Please help!

First I would print out a picture of the someone with the same color skin to have as a reference. Or even ask your client for a picture. Don't be afraid to tell them what you are trying to do. They will probably respect you more for telling them rather than if you mess it up. Wilton has an Ivory color  paste that I would try with a little brown or maybe even red. "Less is more" though. Good luck.
