Hi everyone,

So, everytime I try to make an ivory or beige color from MMF, it always has a pink tint to it (I use Americolors). How do you do it?

You could try vanilla.

I make my "ivory" or "beige" out of a combo of yellow and brown. Works much easily for me. I can control the color better especially when I'm trying to have a color be more "bone" colored than "cream" colored.

Sucre is right, adding a drop or two (or three or four depending on the size of the batch) of yellow is key....if you are just adding a small amount of brown it does tend to create that pink hue and the yellow balances out the pink tones wonderfully.

brown vanilla works great in bc. I don't make MMF, but it should work fine.
