Whats the best way to make a realistic "grape" color? I have a selection of wilton and all of the americolor but not sure which way to start? Thanks!
gosh...I wish you'd gotten more feedback on this one! I keep mixing and coming up with more bluple....I used violet...I used regal purple....I used both and I can't get the color I'm after...I even added in rose...maybe I'll start with rose...cause this one surely has pink undertones..
wish you luck with your color search!
I believe Americolor actually addresses this on their blending chart. Sadly I seem to have misplaced mine, and I really need to find it.
i forget the name of the colour... if its purple or violet, i got it in a box of 8 basic wilton colours. so purpler or violet, and black.
i made up the purple fondant, and made up (well, bought actually) the black, and mixed in bits of black fondant. i went darker than grape id say, but it was pretty 'grape' while i was trying to get my colour.
I use the purple color and add a little black to mine.
I was going for more this color purple
instead, I was getting more a lavendar bluple
I started out with light purple/bluple(took a bit of what I'd made and added a gob of white) then added a bit of red and a bit of wilton rose which resulted in being closer to the undertone then, I added a bit of royal blue then americolor's regal purple. I have the color I need now.
