If I have already colored icing a very pale lavender, can I make that into a sage green or similar color?

take out a small amount and test it. It might work.

Thank you for answering! I will try that, but I was wondering if maybe anyone had any experience with that and what color may be "compatible" with it.

I really do appreciate you answering! I have asked questions before and they are left to fend for themselves!! lol

Try it! It may not be a LIGHT sage green, but I do think you can get it to a green color. Good luck, and let us know your results! icon_smile.gif

I would doubt it..You will end up getting a murky brown.Lavender comes from a pink base and green from a black brown base so the brown out weighs the pink!Try it though....

I just did this last weekend - started with lavender, added a touch of kelly green and got a light mossy green color. It actually worked perfect for what I needed it for - a grass border.

Try adding your green and if there is still too much of the lavender showing add some yellow to pull it out.

Do a search on "color wheel" and use that for mixing colors. If you have too much of a color in your icing you can add a color on the opposite side of the wheel to tone it down. It's weird but it works! icon_smile.gif
