This may be discussed here already, but I looked through some threads that I searched and did not get an answer, and I need help fast as I have to get a grad cap made today so it can dry!!
I am tinting gumpaste, made myself using wilton gumtex and the recipe on the can. I have great success with this recipe and have used it often. I need jet black, and for some reason when I add coloring, it is going GREEN!!! I knew I was going to need this, and needed some a few weeks back so I made a full batch, tinting black as I made it, and ended up with dark forrest green gumpaste!! I was using Wilton black. I made a fresh batch of gumpaste yesterday and started slowly adding color to make it black, as adding while mixing didnt work for me, and again... GREEN!! This time I have Americolor black!! Fortunately I didnt add to my entire batch, so I have started again with a smaller piece and added cocoa to it, and then added black, and it is better, but still has a slight green tinge... has ANYONE had this problem, and what did you do to fix it?? Thanks for your quick answers as I need to get this done ASAP and live in a small town, no access to black fondant or anything readymade.
