I have Forrest green, kelly green, leaf green, and juniper green. What can I mix with any of these to get sage or celery?
Thanks in advance!
Try just juniper. I think it makes a lovely sage green all by its ownself.
For celery green, use your leaf green, but just a very small ammount. You could ad just a touch of yellow, too, but much less of that than the green!
Sometimes you just have to do a trial and error test. I would try a drop of brown in the kelly, or a drop of yellow in the forrest, or start with yellow and add green to it, drop by drop. Somewhere you come up with the colors you're trying to accomplish. Good Luck
I forgot to add. You could mix blue also. Blue and Yellow make Green.
So you can play with those two colors to get a green you want.
thanks everyone!! I knew I could count on you!!
If you find that your greens are too bright.. try adding a teeny teeny bit of red to it. It will dull it out. Red and green are complimentary colors and they will make grey if you mix enough of either into the other, but if you add just a touch it will give you marvelous colors.
in the whimsical bake house book... she says for their house buttercream.. for sage green.... to use 2 drops of green liquid gel color plus 1 drop of brown , per 1/4 cup of house buttercream... hth if you don,t know.... their house buttercream is made with high ration shortening and butter and of course 10x , water , salt, vanilla
