When I created the color sage for one of my cakes (in my photos...the hand painted roses cake) I used a little deep green, yellow, a little black and white (gray) and brown (forgot this in my first response). HTH.

It doesn't look much like sage in the picture, but it matched my wall letters that I painted the cake to match. Here they are on my site....http://j3creations.net/images/oliviatoile.jpg

when I make sage I use green, golden yellow and a little brown, I add then one by one so I can see how the colors coming.
