I found this chart on the web and thought it may be helpful: (The colors used are by chefmaster)
1. Numbers in front of colors indicates the suggested part of each color to use
2. Blend the colors before adding them to the icing. Add the belended color to the icing to get the desired shade
3. A drop of black to some of these colors gives an interesting variation
