I need some help please. I am making a zombie cake and I want the zombie to be sort of a gray-green color. Any ideas on what color I need to use to color my fondant this way??  Should I color it gray and then paint the green color on? If so what color of green would be best? Thanks so much in advance!

Do you want it unevenly blotchy or uniformly gray green.  If you want it blotchy your painting idea would be good with a very light hand.  If uniformity is what you're after I would start with gray and add green tiny bit by tiny bit.
