I need to make midnight blue gumpaste.
I have food color in AmeriColor (Brown, Sky Blue, Violet, Teal, Lemon Yellow, Orange, Royal Blue, Deep Pink, Leaf Green, Fuschia, Super Red & Super Black) and Wilton (Lemon Yellow, Golden Yellow, Pink, No-Taste Red, Burgundy, Violet, Royal Blue, Teal, Kelly Green, Copper, Brown and Black).
I tried to mix AmeriColor with mostly super black and then added some Royal Blue. The reason being is another time I used super black and let it set it turned a pretty dark dark blue. I needed it black so I added brown and it turned a dull black. So I thought if I added blue this time it would turn it more blue. Nope, it turned it a nice deep dark black after sitting for awhile. So I have put that aside for another use.
(I made my first batch of homemade gumpaste. Won't do that again because my mixer, that I thought was big enough to handle it, just about died. Definately need a KitchenAid mixer for that recipe.)
Anyway, would really love any tips on how to make a midnight blue color. Thanks!
I have never made midnight blue but if I were doing it I would probably start out with the royal blue and then add small amounts of black until you get the color you want. Here is a bump.
