Trying to create "Tiffany" Blue...

...or any color for that matter, is not as easy as it may seem!

This would have been much simpler if...A) I had an actual Tiffany box in my hand to match it too (which I most definitely don't) or B) the fine people at Americolor had already figured it out and put it in a bottle for me to just squeeze out.

At this time, neither of those things is happening, so it is up to me and my trusty computer "monitor" to figure it out on our own!  In case you are wondering, I have an upcoming order for cookies with
a "Tiffany's" theme!

This was my first attempt and I will be the first to say, that is a little too dark...although it could look complete different on your screen.  It seemed lighter in the bag than it did after it dried on the cookie. 


Whatcha' think?  A little too blue...needs more green...too dark?  See, I told you...not as easy as it may seem! 

I have time to try and "perfect", but trust me when I say, pretty soon all the colors become a blur and soon nothing seems right!

I think it looks great. Probably just a tad dark but you are on the right track. I'm sure you will nail it for the order. This is my favorite color so I'll take any rejects you have ;-)

I think of Tiffany blue as more of a Robin's egg blue, so lighter than this one. This one has a little too much turquoise.

Regardless, they're still gorgeous, and I can't imagine anyone being less than absolutely thrilled with them!

What do you mean you don't have a Tiffany's box on hand?!! Me thinks somebody better get his butt down to the closest Tiffany's and correct that problem - and tell him to make it something big and blingy!! LOL These are so beautiful, girlie!! Are these for your nephew's wedding, too? I read the post . . . but their destination escapes me. Brain dead!! LOL Missing you mucho!!

Oddly, I ran across a Tiffany box this AM (online, not in my closet, LOL), and they're not robin's egg at all, they've got a lot of green in them, just like you have here!! So just lighten a tad, and by George you've done it!
