I have leaf green and I was wondering how I can make it darker and not so bright green.

TIA!

Kelly green, royal blue & black make forest green. Don't know what to do about the yellow in the leaf green. May as well give it a shot, I suppose. Good luck.

Yoy can put just a very small amount of brown in the leaf green.

Great. I saw in my Wilton class book that Kelly green and black make forest green but I don't have kelly green only leaf green. I thought I would try leaf green and brown and crossing my fingers that it would work.

Thanks y'all!

I wouldn't use brown. There's even more yellow in brown and forest green should have some blue in it. I'd try adding blue & black, even though you don't have kelly green.
