Colors & Flavors as Bold as Your Art

10 SIMPLE GUIDLINES

  1. Colors are mixed by using "parts."

  2.  Parts can be any measurement, For example, a large squeeze, a drop, a dip of a toothpick, or anything in between, Start lighter.

  3. Sweet Color Lab colors are very concentrated; it's    best to use less color at first...more can always be    added, but you can't take it away.

  4. Coloring is simple, the more color you use the darker the color, the less color you use the lighter the color. For example: less color is requires for cake batter, more is needed to color fondant.

  5. Don't stress out! Mixing colors is FUN, and you can adjust your color by adding a little bit more of one color in the recipe.

  6. There are no limitations to the colors you can create.

  7. The depth of the color for each formula will depend on how much you use. If you want a more intense color, use more.

  8.  All colors can go together.

  9. Primary colors are red, yellow, and blue. Secondary colors are green, orange and purple. These are created by mixing two primary colors.   Tertiary colors are created by mixing primary and     secondary. The mixing of color possibilities is endless.

  10. Be adventurous!
