I had a similar color to match--I added purple--very small amount of back as it dull the color. I also take a small amount of water--add small amounts of color to see what happens--you can always use that water in your mmf--saves color.. I always add white white color to MMF--gives a truer color.

I see some pictures online that look like the colors are purple and orange and other's look like a true navy blue. I do believe the official color is navy blue and you couldn't go wrong with that. Depends on what photo you were given to work with.
