You need to invest a few $$ in paste (or gel) colors.  These are very strong and you only need a drop or two to get the colors you mention.

As for ivory/beige/sand color try rubbing a wet teabag over the sugarpaste a bit and then knead it in. Repeat until you get the shade you want.

Americolor has  an ivory gel color. Use the toothpick method of adding the color to your  paste until you get the shade you want.

I use arcolor or liquigel. with a few drops, you can start coloring. Don´t color red or black at home!

the method of Kakeladi is very interesting!!!! I'll try it!!!!...just one question: could wet teabag change the texture of the sugarpaste?

 

I have got some paste colors and I would like to use them to create Ivory and sand color...

using paste colors, what colors I have to mix to create Ivory and sand color?

 

thank u so much!!
