I have tried to get a black royal icing and the best I get is a deep charcoal gray can anyone help with this I know others do it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
mix a bunch of other colours first, it's easier to get black from a dark bluey/redy/green/brown mix than from white
I just use Americolor Super Black and get a true black with no problem. You've got to let the color develop for a little while. It will develop from a deep charcoal to black if you've used enough color. If you try to get jet black immediately, you'll use way too much color.
I let it set over night and it was still charcoal should I just add more black and wait?
Yes, if it's sat overnight and is still not black, add more color. :)
Thanks so much
My blacks and greys sometimes look a little purple, I add a touch of yellow to balance the blue tones and make it black or grey.
