Americolor has a terra cotta color if you're able to get some in your area. Here's a color chart for you too. No terra cotta on the chart but rust looks to be close, maybe adjust a drop here or there for lightness or dark depending on what you want.

You can start with orange and add brown

I just did a flower pot. I used Americolor terra cotta gel, had to use a lot to get this color.

I used both Americolor terra cotta and copper gels for a nice flowerpot/tile color.

I just made a flower pot cake and i used wilton gell colors. I used red and brown, and then maybe a hint of orange if it doesnt look right. I experimented until I got it right. icon_smile.gif

Wilton's Copper color is pretty close - particularly if you use more. I was making basketballs and the Wilton book suggests that Wilton makes a terracotta but they don't sell that color in my craft store - but the copper color worked better than I thought - agree you could add a touch of brown if you want it a little darker.

I agree with the Wilton copper, especially if you don't have time to order Americolor or your local stores don't stock it.

I used Americolor's Terra Cotta color plus some brown and a little red for it to look true terra cotta.

HA! I just colored some MMF copper, or over colored it and thats what the color reminded me of. I couldn't think of it earlier. So def. copper. In my pic's it the Bible.
