Sorry, I have another question today!
I threw away all of my Wilton paste colors because they were driving me crazy. Leaking containers, fading colors, difficult to use, storage issues, etc. I purchased a small set of Ateco spectrum gel colors as a starter set. It has 6 colors. Super Black, Super Red, Royal Blue, Leaf Green, Deep Pink, and Lemon Yellow.
I have been searching for a color mixing chart but I cannot find one that only uses basic colors. All the charts I found use many colors. Also, I am really only finding charts for the Americolor and Wilton.
I don't make enough cakes at the moment to invest in a ton of colors, so I was really hoping to be able to mix colors from what I have. If I find I make a certain color a lot, then I would buy that color.
Thanks for any help!
Americolor and Ateco Spectrum are practically identical in color composition, are they not? I was told that they are the same once. Maybe that's wrong?
You can try PMing "Colorboy", the Official Americolor Rep on this site.
I would suggest buy a color wheel from your local craft shop that can be found in the art section. It's been the BEST $4 investment EVER. I LOVE mine!!!
I believe you will be fine using the Americolor charts.
You're going to love using those gels - so easy compared to Wilton.
Thanks! It looks like I am going to have to buy a few more colors. Too bad! I was really hoping to just be able to stick with the 6 I have.
