Fuchsia= For every 2 cups of royal icing, use 4 drops of blue and 8-10 drops of pink color.
Royal Blue= For every 2 cups of royal icing, use 1 drop of black and 8-10 drops of blue color.
Consider that color can vary depending on how much pressure you use while squeezing the Wilton bottles, my advice is to gradually add drops and mix the royal icing each time until you achieve the desire color.
The Wilton box comes with a color chart with instructions as well.
