I need help mixing the dark pink color here.
I've tried Wilton No Taste Red+a touch of Violet, Wilton NT Red+Rose Pink, CK Cherry Red+CK Bright Red (which is really rose), CK Bright Red+ Wilton NT Red+Violet...not even close icon_confused.gif . I usually don't have any trouble mixing colors, but I'm striking out today. Any help is appreciated.
I sure hope this link works!

It turned out a really ugly almost burnt orange icon_confused.gif ...maybe my burgundy gel is old or off...I just can't get this right.
Thanks for the reply, tho!
I wonder if the Wilton No Taste Red has an orange undertone instead of blue??? Maybe that's the trouble.

I just did a colour check and Wilton Red does appear to have an orange undertone. And my Wilton Burgundy appears to be the closest colour I own to that shade of pink.
I just checked my Americolor red and it has definate blue undertones to it....

Yeah, I think I'll give up today, and go tomorrow and get a new burgundy, and hopefully find another one or two more colors to try. Again, thanks!
