Bundled in an eye-catching 4-pack (1/2 oz. bottles each) featuring the four most popular food colors, LorAnn is excited to announce the product launch of 4-Pack Food Color Assortments in both liquid and liquid gel. Use in a variety of baking and candy-making applications including frostings, icings, batter, lollipops, gummies and more without having to worry about changing your taste or texture of your creation.
Gel food coloring is the preferred choice by professional bakers and candy makers, as well as the home user, since they are highly pigmented colorings. Like most gel food colorings/paste, LorAnn’s Liquid Gel Food Colors are water-based and contain glycerin, where the semi-thick coloring creates a more concentrated form of food coloring.
- Achieve desired color in just 3-4 drops!
- Colors are packaged in a convenient squeeze bottle dispenser.

How To Create Different Colors Using Primary Food Coloring (Both Liquid and Gel)
With these primary colors, it’s never been easier to blend your confections or baked treats and create your own unique shades. There are so many color options beyond just the primary colors. Here’s how to blend primary colors below to create secondary colors or tertiary colors!
- Grab your color wheel chart and your four primary colors.
- Grab two of your primary colors in the same parent family (located next to each other on the color wheel) and mix using 1-2 drops of each color. Mix until you achieve your desired shade (light or dark) and color to create your secondary color.
- When you mix a primary color with a secondary color you create a tertiary color. Basically, tertiary colors are like the grandchildren in the color family!
- Experiment with the gels or liquid primary colors and their ratios to make a color palette that is unique to you. For example, if you want to make a yellow that is more of an orange hue, start with a couple drops of yellow and then follow it with a few drops of red to create the shade of yellow-orange you are aiming for in your creation. This would be a tertiary color!
