Hello everyone,

 

I'd appreciate if someone would help me.  I need to make some NAVY blue fondant.  I've read some posts in the past in this site and learned that I need to add some black to royal blue.

 

I have some Wilton's blue in different shade and an Americolor royal blue liquid/paste color.  Do I need to add black to blue BEFORE added to the fondant or make fondant in blue first then add black to it?  I'm making marshmallow fondant.

I had to make Navy blue last weekend...Dallas Cowboy blue...which is super dark Navy.  I used Americolor NAVY and added VIOLET to it.     You will be surprised how much violet it takes...but also, how it deepens your navy.  

 

If you are using MMF...add it to the bowl before you add PS.    

 

I do not know what result you will get by adding black to Royal.   Wilton is not as concentrated as Americolor and others.   I never, ever use wilton.   

 

Good luck!

AYou can by Americolor at Hobby Lobby. I also was having a difficult time trying to achieve navy over the weekend. I started with Duff Goldman's blue fondant (royal blue) and added black. It ended up being more of of a blueish green and I started to panic when I read that adding violet in addition to the black helps and it my surprise it worked! Ddailge is correct....VIOLET is the key!
