Does any one know what colors I need to make dark green leaves for flowers? I've been trying to figure this out. I use green leaf or green moss gel color but it's not dark enough then I try to use petal dust. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. Thanks for the help!

I use Holly Green - it is really dark deep green. This is a petal dust. I color my paste leaf green then dust them with the Holly Green petal dust and then lightly steam them to set the color. Makes very nice deep green.

i use moss green .. use more if i want them darker. then i dust edges and veins with darker green. if you need liter green leaves. then lighten up on the moss or use leaf green or someother liter green... then dust with darker.. hth
