HELP needed trying to make navy fondant!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I am tying trying to make navy fondant without any luck.  I bought some Duffs blue fondant and it is light blue- way too light so I added Americolor royal blue -  that was the darkest blue that Hobby Lobby sells.  I then added a some black and I ended up with more of a blue/green fondant.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to save this!

americolor sky blue and violet in equal amounts makes navy. sounds odd i know, but it really works.

The blue green fondant might can be saved by adding the opposite color on the color wheel.

Blue- orange

Green- red

Please keep us posted on how it turns out!  I've had good luck using royal and black (especially when I ordered the wrong color!  Sorry DH) so I am curious how this turns out!

If all else fails make it all black and save for future use! Good luck!

Jenn123 you are genius!  I added some of Duff's red fondant and ta-da, it gave me a beautiful shade of navy.  I am so very thankful for all of the other sugestions but I am so glad I didn't have to throw away such a large amount of fondant.  I am a hobbist so I don't make alot of cakes but I was asked to make a football stadium cake for a tailgate I am attending.  Once again you girls (and guys) ROCK!
