I'm having some challenges achieving army/khaki green colored MMF. I have mixed moss and juniper, then added black, then lightenend, then added brown. It's still a bit off. Should I just lighten from here? Is it even possible? Maybe I"m being too particular - it icing after all... I don't want to start over. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I would let it go over night and see what it does now

I did and it's still not the right shade - too green and a bit too dark.

I have found that when using black to darken a color, it turns dingy.
Better option is to use brown, or even better add red or orange to your green for the olive palette.

Thank you so much for that orange/red suggestion. That color palette never even occurred to me and I ended up using copper. Worked like a charm. Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif
