I need to make the color of the hat pictured below. I tried americolor warm brown but it is real red. I tried ivory. I tried mixing darkbrown and ivory..any suggestions?
AProbably a very light touch of brown, countered with yellow, and a little tweaking of the two until you get it right.
AI cannot believe that a brown or ivory didn't get yoy close. That's weird. That's not even what I'd consider khaki...it just looks brown or tan from here.
AI think ivory and brown have too much orange in them. Try adding some green.
AGreen! But I swear that just looks super light brown from here. I know, monitors are all calibrated differently and I'm on an Android too, so that really could play tricks on me
AThe picture is brown, but the brown gels come out very orange. It is hard to get a deep brown color with them.
OP, you could also try using cocoa powder to start out with a more natural shade.
AZ The Navy calls the color Khaki but it really is more of a light brown. I ended up using the dark brown and ivory then adding white. It's close enough. I did it before everyone posted advice. But now I will play around with the other ideas and see if I can get closer. I never realized how hard it would be to color match. Especialy when the color dot on top of the light brown matches almost perfectly! Thanks everyone
AFor future reference, when you're trying to pull it back from being too warm, add the teeniest bit of black.
You could try using brown vanilla.
Ahhh, ok, thanks for clearing that up!
I'm late to the party, but I'd start with a light brown, add a tiny bit of yellow, then a tiny bit of a juniper or olive green. I grew up in a navy family and that color is hideously familiar,
