AI assume you mean a caucasian skin tone? For that I use a little bit of orange, a little bit of pink and a little bit of brown mixed into my white. You might have to play around with the amounts a bit until you get what you are looking for; just add the colours a very, very little bit at a time.

AAlso, the biggest mistake people make when trying to get a good skin tone is adding too much colour. Remember that it will darken up a bit with time, so make it lighter than you think. Hope it turns out well for you!

I have the wilton peach and I've used that but put brown in it to make it not so peachy.

AI use copper as well. Wilton even calls it "skin tone" on some of the jars

I have used peach, pink and brown (sugarflair colours) it looks good so far i have left it a bit lighter than i wanted and hoping it will darken up a tad tomorrow, if not will add a touch the 3 colours again. Thank you everyone for the replies :-D
