Coloring gum paste

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

Hi everyone,!
I’m trying to color gum paste to get this deep pink/fuchsia without any luck. I have used Wilton rose and Americolor electric pink but didn’t get the color I was after. Any advice would be very much appreciated :)

Here are a couple of ideas I have found from different color charts: 1. starting with a red base and adding blue
2. starting with a red base and adding purple 3. add a little blue and mauve to bright pink. Good luck.

Hi there,
I have an Americolor Fuschia #127, works really good by not adding anything! Hope you can find it :-)

Slowly add a tiny blue or purple, just specs at a time. I had the same problem in may with fondant! The rose petal looks very orange to me
