Need some help mixing colors

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

Hi, have any of you ever worked with this color called coral reef? I am trying to make it because I can’t find anything similar to it in stores or online. Can anyone help please. Here is a link where you can get a visual:
Hopefully I can get some great pointers.
Thank you!

Have you taken a peek at sugarbelle’s color mixing chart? There are a few shades of coral/pink that look similar.
Hope it helps, I always have the hardest time getting the colors I want. I have them in my head but can rarely get as rich a color as I want.
Good luck =)

Hi, Vany,

Have you tried looking at Americolor’s “Copper”(flesh color) – you may be able to tweak it a little to get the tone you need.

BTW, I love the color mixing chart sent by Valley Kool Cakes – I’ll definitely use it. Thanks!

I wonder if there is a color chart out there for Americolor?

Oh yes, thank you for the chart Tara, I will try that. It looks like we might have a winner. I will also try the copper as well DJ. Thanks.
AMain if you send me your email, I can send the Americolor chart for you. I have it saved on my computer.
