I've tried this before and it works, so all you have to do is add brown, white and yellow, mix those colors together and it should turn to the color gold, if not than you made a mistake somewhere, and try again. Because I've done it before and it turned like the perfect color of gold. Good luck mixing the colors to turn it into the color of gold! :D :)

Add yellow and brown to get a gold-esh color.

You cannot simply mix the color gold, because what defines it from the color wheel is its metallic sheen. You need yellow, a little orange if you like, and some glitter maybe, depends on what you're working on.

The primary colors are red, yellow and blue. By combining these colors we create secondary colors of orange, green and violet (sometimes called purple) but the true color is violet. Then, by combining the different colors, shades and hues of red, blue, and  yellow in larger amounts such more red and less blue we get what is called tertiary colors.

Notice, I have not mentioned white, black or gold above. This is because white is considered to be the absence of all color and black is considered to be the presence of all colors. Gold is not a color but is a combination of hues created by tinting and combining several tertiary colors. In reality gold is a pigment created from other pigment combinations and is not a color.

One company whose website I visited, creates Gold paint by using a shade of magenta, a medium yellow, a combination of blue/green to create gold paint by shading/hues and tinting mixtures. The website is below: boaboblog.blogspot.com

I also found a great website, which gives a lot of information about color and how to make many colors and shades of icing for cakes. This site is packed with information for anyone who wants to let their creative side show, by baking with color. www.baking911.comdecorating/tinting.htm

Many have suggested mixing black with white, to make gray and then mixing the gray with the yellow. Others have said using brown. My advice is get a nice clean pallet of colours and mix it about. Usually mixing red,blue and yellow to get brown. Try adding brown and white to the yellow to get a gold kind of colour. You could even try using yellowie gold and adding gold sparkles (found in many craft stores) to give it the glint of gold. Basically you need to experiment a little bit. Use small quantities first, and when you think you've got it, go for it!

Good luck!
