HELP...I need olive green icing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am trying to get an olive green icing color. So far I have mixed mint green, kelly green, and forest green and I can't get it! Right now it looks like almost an avocado...I need help...ASAP! icon_cry.gif

Thanks

Add a tiny bit of yellow. Experiment with a little of your avocado colored icing, rather than contaminating the whole batch.

This might not help since you are already coloring the frosting but Wilton has a color called Juniper green that is close to olive.

Yes, add a little yellow and a little brown.

Americolor "Avacado" green with a dab of Wilton "Juniper" green make the perfect olive green!

I like the Wilton Juniper green myself. However, I would add a touch of brown to the "avocado" mix if you don't want it to go to waste. If it needs a hint of yellow as well, you would probably have to add a fair bit of color to be noticed.

Let us know how you achieve your perfect olive color!

If you add plain green coloring to chocolate frosting, you get olive. At least, that's how I've always done olive green. icon_smile.gif

If you're starting with white frosting, therefore, I think you'd mix green and brown, or green and a smidge of red (because red and green mixed tends to come out brown).
