I really need to make a pretty gray color using fondant and/or gumpaste. Every time I try, I end up with a green. I am thinking it is the Wilton color I am using, but I am not sure. ANy suggestions would be great.

I don't think I understand your question. You need to make gray but everytime you try, you end up with gray?

Sorry, I must have been typing too fast. I meant green,. I end up with green.

lol I figured something like that. I usually end up with purple rather than green.

The only time that I have ever gotten a really nice gray was when I mixed all of my leftover fondant scraps turned into this beautiful charcoal gray. Hopefully someone else will have some input for you!

I think it's your Wilton. Maybe it's old or something. I use Americolor gels and they are pretty true to color. You might also try buying black ready-made fondant and adding the white to it. I also think a tiny touch of purple can add a grayish cast.
