Look at global sugar art..they have every color you can imagine in Satin Ice. Wilton make some too but it is poo

if you can't find it make it, buy some white fondant & navy blue color gel and if you cant find navy blue you can try mixing blue with just a little little touch of black

it is really hard to get a deep blue with gel color without making the fondant crumble...you can melt some Merken's candy melts into your fondant to get the color started. WIlton doesn't have dark blue melts.I have tried powder with fondant but it leaves specks. You let it set and the color will deepen so don't make it too blue. Of course if you are using it for modeling you can just make candy clay with the Merken's

I learned this this week. It was a sad sad day. I made another MMF batch (dont know if you make that) and added the color to the melted marshmallows. I let it sit overnight it was DECENT. I wish that I had the time to let it sit at least 2 days.

I have done it that way too...It still didn't come out dark enough for what I needed. That batch was red.

i have finally made navy blue fondant, I used Wilton blue ( the dark blue that comes in the multi pack and mixed it with Satin Ice black to add a little flavor. about a 6:1 ratio. Comes out NY Yankees navy blue. I do recommend using it for accents and not covering an entire cake, but you can if you choose :) Satin Ice also has a great color mixing guide that shows a navy blue but I haven't tried it that way yet.

Satin ice already sells blue fondant

Navy is probably the color I hate the most to make.    After using the navy gel (which will never get it dark enough) someone told me to add violet.   Probably the best advice I ever got.   This will get you navy the quickest.

I find americolor is more concentrated.   Wilton is so diluted.

Xiont:   Alan Tetreault showed a method of adding color to fondant, by using Powdered Colors.  You use an artists paint spatula (the tiny ones) take a tiny bit of Crisco Shortening (looked like a 1/4 tsp.) and then start adding the powdered color.  It reminded me of my husband mixing paints on his palette.

 

I just learned this recently & have only done it once.  I made a really deep mix of color/Crisco, then slowly added it to my fondant until I got the dark shade that I wanted. It was a dark color added to a med color fondant.

 

What Tetreault  said was that this method does not change the consistency of the fondant too much, it's not liquid  - so it doesn't make the fondant wet/sticky.  It's not dry so it doesn't stiffen it - dry it out.
