I've been asked to do a cake to match this party theme:
Super cute and I'm really excited about it, but how do I make my colors like that? They seem to be muted primaries. I can't just add less of a red or green or orange because then I'll get pink or mint green or peach. How do I achieve the same color depth with a sort of 'faded' finish? Any thoughts? Thanks!!
They don't look primary to me... could just be the difference in our screens/computers? If I were going off of that picture, I'd use a "rose/blush" for the pinker shade, a light shade of "buttercup" for the pale yellow, "shy blue" for the blue and maybe a light "forest" green with a touch of ivory in it. Just my opinion! )
They are actually described as primary in the product description...I think basically they are but it's supposed to look sort of 'vintage" so everything has a slightly muted tone to it. Just trying to figure out how I'm going to make these "faded" out colors. Hmm...
My opinion is wilton cornflower blue, peach, kelly green (and if too bright add a little bit of brown?) and where it says "the end. Then stop" try peach and just a little bit of red. Hope I was of any help
I would make the primary colours up and then add additional white past to take the "bright" off of them, just knead through a little at a time.
Add a little bit of their complimentary colors to them... a little red to the green... a little green to the red... a little orange to the blue.. a teeny bit of purple to the yellow (teeny)... etc. This will grey them up a tinge and then add some white to lighten them up a few shades. Is there anyway they can get you one of the invites?
