Oh, and in case you've forgotten the basics: Yellow and Blue = Green; Yellow and Red = Orange; and Red and Blue = Purple ;-)

You know, the cost of buying food coloring is so expensive, that I have done one better. Local salvation army's or goodwill stores stick out their seasonal items weeks early. I stop and pick up a few of the boxes of kits and use them. Usually $.50 or less per and for me it doesn't matter what the kit contains as long as it has the dye tablets in. Let's see, 1 bottle of 1 color of dye, $3, so for that I can have 6 kits. Stores don't ship them back. They clearance them or donate them. May as well be YOU who gets a good deal. I have a rubbermaid box with Easter egg decorating things in. I picked up the beautiful jewel tone grasses already for $.10 a bag. $1.00 at the retail store. I find my treasures are useful year round.
I've been doing this for several years now. I think it makes richer colors and my kids love mixing to see what combinations they can make.
