I just realized i don't know have any brown food coloring and need a little bit of brown BC. Can I make it without the actual color? Appreciate your ideas. Thanks.

You can add some cocoa powder or some melted chocolate.

Opposites on the color wheel make + red, orange + blue, yellow +purple. I made the most gorgeous brown the other day when cleaning up, I put all colors in cup together before washing up...thought a shame I didn't need it.

Best of luck! icon_biggrin.gif
