Good Morning Cakers!!!

I'm trying to color my MMF a Turquoise Blue (6 parts sky blue; 1 part lemon yellow) and it looks dark green. Any ideas as to how I can Fix this to look like a blue color Turquoise? Thanks.

I'm not a formula user, but In my mind, that's definitely a formula for green (blue+yellow).

The sky blue is on the way to turquoise, anyway, so I'd have probably just tried adding a bit of mint or leaf green to it.

Now that you have some dark green, I think you need to lighten it with some white (fondant or color) to see the underlying shade is--it may be OK, if just lightened up a bit. If it comes out too green, try adding back in just a bit of the sky blue.
