Hi All!

Does anyone know what colors I could mix in order to dye white gumpaste CERISE PINK? That is that's been requested of me but I've never made it before.

I agree, you really need a sample, paint chip is probably the easiest to get a hold of.

I had typed thanks in the subject line but it didn't appear in my post. I don't want to seem ungrateful! Thanks to all for your help with this and for sharing these wonderful links!
