Hello Enco Family! Our 9 Basic Food Color Gel Set has been blowing up on our Amazon Store lately, and we want to let you in on a little secret. With just these 9 food colors, you can create up to 60 different shades! If you don't have the set yet, don't worry. We'll show you how to make all these shades with just a few simple steps.
First, you'll need to buy the 9 basic colors: Lemon Yellow, Orange, Red, Purple, Leaf Green, Super Black, Bright Blue, Bright Pink, and Dark Brown. Once you have them, you'll be ready to start mixing and combining. Our Color Mixing Guide, included in the 9 Basic Color Set, will be your go-to resource for making new shades for your creations and ideas.
Here's how it works. The guide provides instructions on how many drops of each color you need to add to achieve the desired shade. For example, if you want to make a perfect Lemon Yellow, you'll need to add 12 drops of yellow to your desired frosting. However, keep in mind that 1 cup of buttercream icing is different from 1 cup of royal icing, so make sure you have the same amount of frosting before adding your food colors. Whipped cream is also a bit trickier, so you'll need to use more color. For whipped cream, always multiply the number of drops by 1. 5.
Now that you know the rules, get ready to explore all the 60 color combinations you can create with just our 9 food colors. You can make shades of Yellow, Orange, Purple, Red, Blue, Pink, Green, Brown, and Black. We've listed the number of drops needed per color for each combination, so you can easily follow along and create your desired shade. Use these vibrant shades to paint your meringue frosting, buttercream icing, fondant, cake batter, cookie dough, royal icing, jelly, and much more.
