Hi Guys

can anyone tell me what colours of fimo polymer clay I need to mix in order to make a realistic colour for biscuits/waffles etc. I have tried so many variations and can't get it quite right. Any help would be much appreciated.

Dunno what brand you're using, but when I make bready stuff I start with Fimo's "sand" color and work in bits of yellow, orange, etc until I get a good dough color.  I give it a baked look by brushing on pastels or chalks in various browns.

You might also want to check out these pages for info on making realistic-looking breads, biscuits, pastries, etc, and for mixing various shades of "brown" in general:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/miniatures.htm (click on Breads and on Sweets, under Foods category)
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/color.htm (click on Recipes & Combos, then scroll down to Individual Colors and the browns)

(It would be good to mention which Fimo line you're using too --FimoSoft or FimoClassic-- since their colors are different, and have also been different in the past from what they are now or even discontinued.  Guess I could look up which line carries a color called "Sand" these days, but too lazy to do that...lol.)

How could I forget tutorial links?  Roll Eyes Early in my work night when I posted.  Wasn't awake yet I guess.  And too focused on making cupcake papers.

I started with Nora Jean's site (follow Diane's links).  It's great, probably the best food tutorial site there is...or at least the most through.

It also depends on how realistic you want your finished work to be... and what size.  If you're really serious about making a variety of very tiny foods you should buy Angie Scarr's two books.  I recomend both because between them there are techniques for realistic minis of almost any food type you can think of.  They were also released a few years apart, so you can see her techniques evolve, which is helpfull in setting your mind to start thinking of your own variations.
