Royal Blue Vs Navy Blue

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I had it in my head that I needed a Navy color on a cake im working on, made up the fondant... but I just double checked the order... and it is actually royal blue icon_razz.gif

I am out of royal blue gel (That i was thinking i would add to blue fondant).

I have Blue Statin Ice fondant... any suggestions on what I can mix in to get royal? I'm having a hard time picturing what shade it should be.

Thanks

Navy is darker and deeper. Some navy's are so deep that you have to look to tell if it's black or navy. I guess I think of Royal blue like a blue version of the purple that royal families used to wear. They are pretty close, but royal is brighter and navy is darker.

I would say this would be considered navy:

You could go even a little darker if you wanted. Beautiful cupcakes by the way!

According to the chart it would seem to me that you would have to add some purple. To me, the second one below the main Blue color looks more royal and it states two blue to one purple. I think there are many shades of royal blue and each person's perception of colors is always a little different. Hope you find the color you're looking for. icon_smile.gif

On that chart, I'd call the 4 blue 1 purple shade "royal blue." Or maybe the blue-pink-black one under it. And I really don't see anything I'd call navy. Navy is generally blue + black.

Here's a chart with royal blue, navy and "light navy" marked.

This version of royal blue is really a touch more purple than I would use, but I bet if you took the navy you've already mixed and blended in some white and some purple, you could come up with royal.
