Add a little black to your blue. Just a tiny bit at a time to get the correct shading.

Let me know how your Navy turns out. I have been coloring gumpaste all night. Doing a Rubiks cube cake for this weekend. (Actually doing 6 cakes for Sat and catering a 2000 guest party), Thank God it is Buffet!

I JUST tried to figure this color out as well. . .you need VIOLET too. . .that is what did the trick. To get the color, I used blue, black and some violet.

Good luck!

It's uber hard to get navy and let's hope you color all you need the first time, because trying to match a second time is near impossible. I learned very early on to purchase Americolor Navy Blue. It solved any issues with "add a little more of this, and a little more of that..." Best of luck!
