I tried making gray the other day.. I used white on my buttercream and then added black.. i ended up with a shade of purple.. How weird is that

Is there a way to get the purple tint out of it? I am making it for a semi stock trailer

Thanks for your time

Try mixing your gel color with a toothpick before you add it to the BC. You could also try adding a small amount of yellow, bu tit may make your gray brownish instead of purplish.

I read that it might happen if color was old, but i just got it less than a month ago from wilton.. So I am not sure if thats a possiblity
