I need help how do I make gray fondant,
I'm mixing black color paste w/ white fondant and getting all colors of purple I don't need the color purple I need gray
Can anyone help maybe ??????
Wow...I don't know why this is happening to you. I have made several shades of grey using black paste in white fondant successfully. I hope someone can answer this for you.
I know mixing several colors together gives you gray/black, but if you have purple already I would try adding a little brown first and see what you end up with. Keep adding different colors until you wind up with gray and then if it is too dark, add more white fondant until you get the shade of gray you need.
I had the same problem. Lighting was a factor for me. Under the flouresent (sp?) kitchen light it looked purple; in my living room, it looked more grey. The longer it sat, the more grey it looked. I also had better results using a different brand (Kountry Kitchen) vs. Wilton.
I made gray fondant for a cake. When I decorated it, it looked fine. But when I looked at it an hour later, it was definitely purple! I'd used Wilton black that time. I wonder if the Wilton brand has something to do with it.
