Is it possible?

It would be okay if said color was a little tan as it will be a guy lying on the beach.
Thanks.

I would use white and add a little orange and purple until you get the color you want.

I've used it for paint and it works fine.

You will have to make your orange out of yellow and red
and purple out of red and blue.

Americolour makes an ivory colour that I've used successfully. In a pinch, I've also used a tiny amount of yellow, and an even tinier amount of brown mixed together.

Wilton makes "Flesh." Works quite well.

I start with ivory (or white), touch of brown, touch of pink.

I start with white and add a little Americolor ivory and just a touch of Americolor warm brown. Start lightly and you can adjust to the color suntan you want.

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

I use tiny amounts of yellow brown and red. I learned this from my friend who is a makeup artist, those are the 3 colors used to make custom foundation.

I use yellow, brown and pink. That's what I did for the flesh colour of my "baby in rose" cake.
