Wilton makes a moss green color

Well, the problem is, the closest place that sells it is 50 miles away and I need it by Friday. May just have to make that trip, but I was hoping I might mix some colors together. I guess I could experiment!

I would try mixing lemon yellow with kelly green, or if you're going for a deeper color, add a bit of brown.

Thanks, I was thinking green and brown. I'll try it. Thanks!

If you have Americolor it takes leaf green and orange.
I do leaf green and then add the orange.

If you don't have Americolor, I'm thinking a green, not a kelly green with yellow could get it done. Maybe let it sit overnight and add a tip of orange if you're working with the big W colors.

mix the green with red or orange and that will make it a bit browner. To make a color darker or in my terms muddier mix it with the opposite color on the color wheel. The opposite of green being red. Do it just a bit at a time. Good luck

I do have Americolor and will try that. Thanks so much-- I would never have guessed orange or red!
