Does anyone have a good color blending chart for Americolors?

I have the short one on Americolors website but I'm looking for a more extensive color blending list. Hoping someone has a document saved of colors they have put together or a good one they have found online.

Any help would be much appreciated. TIA. (I dont sell, so this is not asked for use for that purpose. I only bake for family & friends, and a lot of grandbabies parties school events etc. lol.)

I found a good start in the articles section. Another question however, please.

In the article it mentions that cream of tartar (or lemon, acid) in a icing recipe will affect icing colors. Do you all not use cream of tartar in RI if coloring certain colors for decorating? (I use antonia74 RI recipe.)

speaking of color, I have bright color hands....

Rec'd my pkg today with my set of Americolor Airbrush colors...they were packed in the box upside down & leaked out (dripping). WHAT a mess!

Thank goodness nothing else in the pkg got messed up.

I always wear gloves when working with colors, but not when opening pkg's. lol.

I don't have the americolor airbrush colors but you could try to pm antonia74, she is very nice and has always answered my questions HTH

I don't add cream of tartar to royal icing because it is already in the brand of meringue powder I use (Wilton). Sorry I don't have a color blending guide. I just buy tons of colors and then use trial and error. =)
