Using oil-based colouring, I would use green and a tiny touch of black.

Hey, welcome to Cake Central...are you in TAS, Australia tazmanianmama1??

Do you have access to oil based candy colors? If so I would add a little brown or black to green. Maybe a hint of yellow. If you don't have candy colors you could try melting different colors of candy melts and mixing small batches until you reach the desired color but that seems tough to get a consistent color.

Okay, so I just had a peek at your photo of the army helmet cake-pops. I'm assuming you want a more olive green for those? The colour you used is a fairly blue-based green. As Sillywabbitz suggested, you might need to use yellow in with your green - mix a more lime-green to start with then add just a touch of black (or brown)

@Coral3- lol. no i do not live in Australia... I just love Taz icon_smile.gif The helmets are ok that color. I need olive green for a kid who's going to prom. His outfit is Olive green, so he wants some tuxedo pops for his champagne party. I'm going crazy trying to figure out how to get the color. By where i live the Michael's doesnt carry the light green candy melts only the dark ones.

@sillywabbitz - I use the Wilton candy melts and color them with the oil based candy coloring. i thought about that and might give it a try.
