Hi Lesley

Wedgewood blue can be sometimes be found on Amazon, try googling it to see whether it might be available. If making it yourself start with a duck or powder blue and knead very tiny amounts of black paste into it. Go very, very gently with the amount of black, start with a pea size or even smaller and add a little more until you achieve your shade of Wedgewood blue. Start with a weighed amount of the blue. Weigh each piece of the black, write down the amount before kneading it in. This way you will always be able to make an exact match of the colour you have made even if you run out of the shade. If the duck or powder blue are too light try a slightly darker shade of blue. It’s a case of experimenting.
How soon do you need the paste? If it’s not for a while I would be happy to make it up with weights. It does depend though on the exact Ww blue.

EDIT: It’s best to experiment with small amounts first. Starting with a white base will be more time consuming than if you start with an already blue base.

Hi, apologies I have missed your answer. the wedding is not until August 2017. Nothing like planning in advance 🙂 I’m also trying to source some of the wedgwood dancing ladies moulds but this is proving difficult as well. I like a challenge!
