I need to achieve seafoam green in BC for a cake this weekend. The closest thing on my color chart is aqua...but it is too blue, and not quite the seafoam-y I was going after.
Any suggestions before I waste about 2 cups of BC ? icon_confused.gif Has anyone ever done this color before...and wrote down the equations? icon_lol.gif

It is soooooooo hard to go by a name of a color. Each company calles there color something different.....another co might call it aquagreen icon_sad.gif

Do you have a color chip/sample to go by?

Can you add some more green to a small amount, then mix into white? Work w/sm amounts until so you don't have a lot of wast.

Try using just a bit of willow or juniper green (wilton). Hope it helps.

I actually googled it and the Wilton forum has 1 equation:
2 parts forest green and 1 part ivory (that sounds dark, doesn't it?)

SC has another equation:
1 pt yellow and 1 pt blue. I think that is just gonna give me flat out green, though icon_smile.gif

You are right, I will just play with it (in teeny weeny amounts) til I get what I am after. No color swatch, but I will know what it is supposed to look like when I see it icon_smile.gif
