how do i get the tan/orange color of a basketball? what gel food colors should i mix?
this is for a basketball to but inside of the hoop and basket i made...
Would orange and a little brown do it? I'm no expert at this - I generally end up playing with a little bit of my fondant or buttercream and the colors I think might work. Anybody else have a more scientific answer?
Americolor Terracotta is good.... otherwise you will want to make a nice reddish orange color and then add a bit of brown.
thanks! that's the way i normally do it too, but i need to color a lot of fondant, and i don't want it to take forever if i can help it!
thanks again for your suggestion!
Mix orange and brown untill you get the color you want and then color the fondant. That's what I did and it took less time than kneeding in the color little by little.
I'll try that tonight, since I don't have the americolor terra-cotta!
