Making BLUE sugarpaste

Hi everyone, does anyone else have any trouble making blue sugarpaste? I have sugarflair- ice blue, baby blue, navy, and Wilton sky blue and not any of them make what I would consider a plain nice blue, they all have a turquoise look about them, ie elsas dress in frozen, but if I want a nice baby blue for a christening cake etc I always end up with this greeny blue turquoise colour. Has anyone got any tips or other brands of colours they use?
Thanks

I always add the tiniest amount of sky blue, mix then let it sit for a hour or so, cause it always go darker. After your finished making your colour, add a bit of baking soda to your fondant. Sets the colour and stops fondant from deviating from your original colour.

Thanks, I’ve never thought to leave it for a while to let the colour settle, always just used it straight away. I’ve just ordered some more colours from sugarflair, blue bell and Aztec blue. I’ll give those a try 😊
