Yes, that's it icon_biggrin.gif

Looks like the green could be Americolor's electric green too. I used electric green on the lighter leaves on these: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1475494 (only a couple in the picture, have to look closely for them)

I would agree that it is Electric Purple... I have some in my box and just used it last week and derived the same results.

I have Americolor Fuschia and this color is very similar to that, but I've only used it once, so can't say exactly. I LOVE the electric purple fwiw! For the green I mix Americolor Avocado with Electric Green and get exactly that color; it's my favoritist green ever!! icon_smile.gif

Callyssa, based on your super-enthusiastic endorsement, I bought Americolor Avocado today. Can't wait to try it (the combo of the two) thumbs_up.gif

Ahhh! I hope you like it as well as I do! I just adjust the amount of avacado vs. electric green to get a more toned down, or brighter green, depending on what I'm looking for. I'm not one to EVER use a single color! Sometimes I also add in a touch of Wilton Juniper Green if I want it darker. I hope I didn't steer you wrong!

I'm the color mixing Queen! --Can't help it, spent too many years painting and mixing colors that way as well. icon_biggrin.gif

Me too!! I always add 2-3 colors of bc in the decorating bag too; I think it gives a more realistic look!

They look like the green is electric green from Americolor. The pink one looks like
The electric pink but seems shaded with purple.
