Mixing Paint

I'm making a Curious George out of sculpey for my aunt for Christmas and I just can't seem to get the color right for his face. Here's the pic I was using for reference:

I tried mixing red, yellow, and white(I'm out of orange) and it didn't seem to go so well. It always came out peach/almost pinkish instead of cream colored.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Maybe if you make a mix of red, white (making pink), more white than red, adding yellow and less than a drop of blue ._.'' well,  of maybe that mix can be a  kind of brown .___.'''''

It's a very light brown, which means, like Haitso said, you need to add some blue. The best way to mix paints is to create the hue you want first - that is, the balance of red to blue to yellow - and then add your white.
