I want to switch over my Wilton colors (a few years old) for Americolor, but I can't do it all at once.
What are your fave top 10 colors that you can't live without?

I don't have a top 10 - I would just suggest all of the main colors.

Definitely black, brown, blue, green, red, yellow, pink, purple, and orange. You might want a copper and an ivory as well.

And I agree that navy is a good one to have on hand. (I'm wishing that I had some as we speak. I'm going to have to make it - blah).

May I suggest that rather than choosing x colors as "the best" to have on hand, you slowly replace your colors as needed? That's what I have done, and I'm STILL collecting colors on an as-needed basis.

I would add "warm brown" and I find alot of use for the "electric" colors. The only one so far that i really don't like is Christmas Red, which is like a brick red, not a red red. And i have the really large bottle of it. icon_sad.gif

Definitely start with Super Black, Regal Purple and Super Red!! You won't regret it!

Red and black of course. I also love electric pink. Well I like all the electric colors minus the purple. I like the chocolate brown over warm brown personally. And I prefer Wilton's leaf green to Americolors.

I use both brands of colors depending on what colors/shades/tons I want.

Good idea. I think this is how I'll go about it.
