I 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.

Also, 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 use copper color.

I homeschool because I've seen the village and I don't want it raising my children.

I 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.
