The only thing more fun than AmeriColor is a page of AmeriColor formulas.
AmeriColor is food color in a gel form. General information and what the colors look like right out of the bottles here.
Each pair of colors was tested at a ratio of 1 to 1.
Instructions on how to read these charts is on this page.
In this photo Electric Yellow, Electric Orange, Electric Pink and Electric Blue were added to each of the other colors.
Electric Yellow makes bouncy color mixes. Electric Pink produces floral tones.
In the second photo Electric Purple, Red Red, Egg and Lemon are tested.
Electric Purple works as a gray. Lemon and Violet or Purple make an interesting color. (I'm not quite sure what to call it - perhaps Ashes of Roses?)
Photo three is Leaf, Forest, Burgundy, and Violet. Violet is a weak color.
The last photo is Purple and Royal Blue.
Electric Orange is a mineral orange.
Egg is gold while Lemon is slightly green.
Electric Yellow is halfway between Egg and Lemon.
Electric Blue and Royal are darker colors than most.
Violet and Regal Purple need to have the red set before you add more vinegar to set the blue. They also lose some of the red as the dye bath ages if you don't use it all within the two or three days.
Sky Blue and Royal Blue are different colors. Royal has red added. But when mixed with other colors, especially the dark ones, the resulting mixtures are so close in color that the camera couldn't show the difference.
Dark green isn't one of my favorite colors, however Forest is a great color to have for mixtures.
