Have you got a picture of what your customer thinks 'coral' is? Their version might be a simple peach. I would mix a little red and a bit of yellow to get my version of coral. (I use americolour gel colours)

Your answer is here on this thread “Coral Branch/Sea Plume”

Howsweet posted photos of live coral.

yeah, just like any colour, you really need to match against an example shade (if customer is picky about the shade) because it's completely open to interpretation. I personally would just add some orange to a deep pink/almost red.

Those first ones are a coral color, fwiw. Just fyi, corals are not plants. Sometimes I use red and add yellow. It hits coral before you get to orange. As mentioned, it really depends on the shade of coral you need.

Page two of this link might help.

Rose pink + yellow  (Wilton colors)   

 

I use Americolor but generally pink + yellow + orange (very, tiny amount) should work.

Huh, What happened?  I miss out sometimes on internet stuff, but I don't know what you mean.

the coral photos of LIVE beautiful multi-colored real coral I hoped would help you out.

There is nothing here to apologize for. :P
