I was wondering if anyone has made fondant the color of sea glass? Or perhaps you have suggestions on what I can mix to get this shade of blue or green? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

It's just varying tones of blue with green and yellow. You can start with a sky blue color and add touches of green and yellow. Add those colors to the blue in very small amounts and build to what colors you want. For the darker shades use a royal blue.

Thanks for the suggestions! I think the dark blue is what I am most concerned with duplicating. I was thinking royal blue too..however, I'm not sure what color to add that would give it such a vibrant hue. Almost looks like it has purple undertones?

You can try to add a drop of Americolor electric blue o purple. They make really vibrant colors. Electric purple (or pink) fades very quickly exposed to daylight/sun though. If they are gumpaste decorations, adding baking powder and keeping them in a box in a cupboard will help to prevent fading.
