A couple of things to remember:

 

1. These formulas are not set in stone. Experiment. If you are using some other clay than Fimo, you will have to experiment anyway. Make the colors to your liking. After all, Jade comes in most colors except blue, and the green varies from the very palest hint of green to a bright green to almost black.

2. Do not expect the mixed unbaked colors to be anywhere close to the baked colors. Take this on faith and bake a bit before you go adding more clay to change the color.

3. Try the different Transparent clays, Opaque, etc. Each will give you different results.
