Does anyone have a good recipe for achieving a medium grayish blue? I'm using Wilton icing colors.

Based on color theory, if you mix a color with it's complement, in this case blue with orange, you will get grey depending on the proportions of each hue. Just experiment with the colors until you get what you are looking for. I only work with Lanaset Premetallized dyes, but I assume you would get a similar effect with the food dyes.
