    Can someone be creative for me? Please? DIY

    Hi everyone, im clueless with diy so hoping for some help.
    I've been looking at heaps of recipes and theres always a flavour I dont have.
    Heres a list of my flavours,
    MBV- cotton candy, butter toffee, caramel candy.
    FA- passionfruit, strawberry, butterscotch, mandarin.
    TFA- spearmint, watermelon, sweet cream, french vanila.

    hoping someone can say "oh you could make a nice ****** mix with that".

    Also suggestions on key ingredients to greatly expand possibilities are welcome.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I would add some vanilla custard, (Capella is very nice), some bavarian cream, and some Koolada or Extreme Ice, to give your fruit flavours a bit of a zing for summer vaping Some RY4 is a good standby as well. I like the Asian RY4 from TPA, or the Double RY4, you can mix this with vanilla, any creams, and even fruits, menthol, or the butterscotch and caramel.

    Have fun mixing

    I would mess around with percentages with the folowing
    French Vanilla (watch this does not over power everything)
    Caramel Candy
    butter toffee
    and some sweet cream to smooth it out and give it a bit of creamy feel.

    Not really too sure to be honest, I haven't played with those concentrates. Spud may have an idea.

    At a guess I'd start at 3% watermelon and 3% strawberry and see what that's like and go from there.

    Try 2% spearmint with 3% cream & add a few drops of butterscotch for a bit of a malty backing(add the first 2 flavors first, the add drops of the 3rd & test vape for taste, stop when it tastes right).

    Should make a nice malted, spearmint milkshake flavor
    You may need more cream, maybe up to 4%.

    I use this method for guessing ratios, I look at whats recommended by the concentrate manufacturer, or vendor, and start there. If I really like a flavour to be strong in the mix, I add 2-3 % more than recommended, then test it.

    So far I've worked out that with most fruit flavours, 2-3% is enough. Custards, vanilla, and creams I use 10% or even a little more, if I'm making a dessert flavour. Butterscotch really depends on the brand. I use hangsen and mix at about 5%.

    Super concentrates I mix a 1-2%. Some concentrates like coffees, menthols, or some tobaccos, you only need a few drops per 10mls.

    The trick is to keep it simple at the start, 1 or 2 flavour mixes. Start with small amounts, 3mls will give you enough mix to do a test using a dripper, which will give you an idea if the mix is strong enough or not, it also gives you a good idea if the flavours work well together.

    Keep notes on your tests, then you will have them to refer to when you go on to more complex recipes.

    There is a lot of trial and error with mixing, which is why I suggest starting with small amounts, you don't want to be mixing up 30ml of an untested mix, only to find out its arse juice.

    When I started in DiY, I kept it simple 2 -3 flavors at most & always used 5ml test batches, 10ml test batches might be a little easier to work out, since ratios in 10ml work nicer but if your maths is reasonable use 5ml batches.
    Then when you make the inevitable arse juices, you can pour them out & not lose a lot of juice to wasted experiments
