    are you talking about mixing the candy02 colors like you do paint or layering different candy colors over each other to get the color you want?
    I have not tried mixing one into the other as of yet but I have layered them to get the desired color I want.

    Candy's work different to other paints, my understanding is that the desired effect is done by layering over other colours rather than colour mixing. I suspect there is no problem mixing them and others will be able to confirm that.

    The candy 2Os? Im surprised that worked! My guess woulda been that the dark ones woulda turned to black...who knew?

    I mixed yellow and blue for one of the lures I did. Then I also added fluorescent yellow to it, but I screwed it up after that and took it all down to primer to start over...
