Hi, I'm having trouble getting a light creamy caramel brown color with the clay I have.  I keep getting peaches, orange, or purpley/reddish tints, and skin tone colors/dull colors.  When I add yellow to it, it doesn't turn out well, and sometimes it looks too garish.  I've done ecru or white with the three browns I have (fimo caramel, fimo chocolate, premo raw sienna), and fimo lemon/sunshine, and sometimes I added orange, blue, red, etc.  This is for 1 project but now I'm worried I'll never be able to make miniature caramel food or wood and stuff like that.

I really want to make colors that are in these ornaments, all of the brown colors in there.  I did get a nice mocha brown so far, but none of these yellow or caramel browns or lighter browns.  The rainbow teddy bear is the one I really want to match, but the oven mitt or pumpkin squirrel is fine too.

Thanks for any help!
