I just made a batch of MMF and added a dot of black Americolor hoping to turn it light grey. It turned a bit of a violet color! I don't want to add more black as it will be black. I just want a light grey.
Any suggestions? Thank you!
I would try a whitener, then work from there. Do you have any Wilton black? Maybe stick with that when going for grey -that's what I do. I find the superblacks are a bit too strong and tend to go a bit purple on you....
Thank you. I don't have a whitener, but will try Wilton black. I'm just afraid it's going to turn BLACK and not grey.
I have never had Wilton black turn purple on me - good luck!
i seem to remember needing more black than i though to get grey.
maybe better making up a blob of black fondant, and mixing that bit by bit into the white?
It's so hard after it's already made. Ugh. But will try a bit more black.
It is probably too late now, but I made a grey using black Americolor with a little bit of chocolate brown. I don't have the proportions as I just messed around with it until I achieved the desired color. It is in my pictures.
Hope you were successful.
I just mixed in a bit more black and it's still violet, but a bit more grey.
Or maybe I'm trying to believe it's a bit more grey!
When I washed off the bit of black that dropped on my counter, I couldn't believe how much BLUE was in the black!
