Default Ribbon colors for skin tones

What colors do you use for skin tones when making princesses, ballerinas, ribbon sculptor people. I use Schiff lt ivory for Caucasion, but I would like to offer my ribbon people in a variety of ethnicities. What do you use for Asian, African, and Latin ethnic backgrounds?

I am so glad you asked this! I was just discussing this with DH last night. I am anxious to see what people say.

Default Re: Ribbon colors for skin tones

this is something I have been thinking about...as I write al these ideas for my store...

For skin colors..just like I woudl carry color charts I would have one for skin colors chart...and let the buyer decide...I think as a buyer myself I would like to see the ribbon and make that choice for myself!

From dark brown to almost white...and all the beautiful colors in between!

I was thinking oatmeal as well for another skin tone. Would Offray's coffee be another good choice?

I think it's a great idea to offer the colors and let the customer decide, but I would like to have some ready made ones as well - both to photograph for my store and also to sell at craft shows as well.
