Small Caps and Bold Face

I'm trying to get some bold, colored, small-cap text. I've tried different variations, including:

{\bf \textcolor{blue}{\textsc{text}}}

and it doesn't work.

Any suggestions?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

this is a font problem. You don't have a font loaded that supports bold caps. – someonr Jan 6 '12 at 4:08
You need to use \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}\usepackage{xcolor} and then \textcolor{blue}{\bfseries\textsc{text}}. Don't use the deprecated \bf. For more on this, see Will two-letter font style commands (\bf, \it, ...) ever be resurrected in LaTeX? – Werner Jan 6 '12 at 4:10

If you do \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} you have bold caps in your font avaiable. Don't use \bf and so on because they overwrite each other. Here is a MWE:

    \textcolor{blue}{\textbf{\textsc{bold small blue caps}}}
