Attached are 2 pictures of train sets I made from fondant. One was made with the store bought Wilton primary colors fondant (picture 2) and the other is made with fondant I made (picture 1). My question is does anyone know how to get the deep blue color of Wilton's store bought fondant? I thought is was a royal blue, so I bought Wilton Royal Blue gel color. I put a ton of color in my fondant, blue I did not get the same color blue.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I think you could have got there if you added a bit more royal blue. I made a fondant demo cake the other day and I wanted a really dark royal blue fondant and I got it. Its almost navy. I used wilton's royal blue with MMF. I did add a ton of color. About half of the jar I think.
