What colors do you mix to make skin tone color



A FEW NOTES ABOUT THE COLOR FORMULAS:


I used Chefmaster brand food coloring for all of these formulas. 


If you're not sure what the "parts" mean, or how to use these formulas, check out THIS POST for detailed step-by-step photos! 


When I make very light or pale icing colors, I mix the food coloring into a very small amount of icing (2 tablespoons) first and then use that saturated icing to color the rest of my icing. (Check out THIS POST for details.) 


Quite a few of these colors have the same RATIOS. I've simply added more or less food coloring to the same amount of icing for darker or lighter shades.
