Kool-Aid Formulas for 135 Colors
(Scroll down for video)
Go beyond pre-made shades of Kool-Aid. By adding two flavors together, you can make great new colors. The formulas here show you how.
In the top of the first photo, lemonade is added to each other flavor. In the lower half of the photo, orange is added to each flavor.
Each pair of flavors was tested at the ratios 1 to 3, 2 to 2 and 3 to 1.
Flavors used with abbreviations:
Select the shade you want from the photos below.
The chart is read like a multiplication table.
- #1 is 1 part lemonade and 3 parts orange.
- #2 is 3 parts lemonade and 1 part strawberry.
Notes on colors:
Lemonade, pink lemonade and ice blue are weak colors. They work fine with each other but get swamped by the red flavors.
If you are using Lemonade, there isn’t much difference if the mix is 1 to 3, or 2 to 2 or, 3 to 1 for most colors. The exception is pink lemonade and ice blue.
Orange and lemon-lime are surprisingly useful colors. The orange is great for dulling down color blends. If you need green tones, it is more economical to buy lemon-lime than dozens of packages of lemonade to add to the berry blue.
Strawberry, fruit punch and cherry (not shown) are almost the same color. They are very strong colors.
