I found this chart on the web and thought it may be helpful: (The colors used are by chefmaster)


Directions:
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


Apricot= 2 orange and 1 yellow
Avocado=4 lemon yellow, 1 leaf green and a touch of black
Burgundy= 5 bakers rose and 1 violet
Chartreuse=5 lemon yellow and 1 leaf green
Copper=1 egg yellow, 1 brown and 1 christmas red
Coral=3 rose pink and 2 lemon yellow
Dusty Rose=2 chrismas red and 1 brown
Gold=10 lemon yellow, 3 orange and 1 christmas red
Plum=1 violet and a touch of christmas red
maroon=4 red red and 2 burgundy

You' all are welcome. It's my pleasure!! Hopefully everyone will post what color combos are accurate and what combos are inaccurate so none of us waste our time and money on things that don't work. I'm going to try a couple tonight on fondant and I'll post the results!!!
