How to make plum and lilac

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

Hello everyone,
Could you help me out I need to color my icing to a plum color and a lilac. I can’t quite get the shade I want all I have for purple color is violet, and that is all that is available in stores around here. Can anyone help?
Thanks

Tara,
Not sure when you need the colors for and if you have time to get more colors but I got this chart from Sugarbelle and it is awesome!
