does anyone know which colors i can mix to make the color "camel"? i've played with different colors for about 2 days now and nothing is working. icon_sad.gif i've tried using brown and yellow but its not capturing the "gold" undertones. can anyone help please?

Americolor has a color called warm brown and if you add just a hint of the Americolor 'gold' it comes pretty close to camel. You might just be able to get away with using the warm brown.

Keep playing. That's how I mix colors! I usually mix colored frostings, not add color to the frosting I'm trying to make. I'd take some white frosting, add some (not much) brown frosting (not brown coloring). You'd get some sort of tan. Then add some yellow frosting (not yellow colorig), etc., if it's too dark, add more white frosting.
