Dark colours (especially black and red) are much harder to make, not impossible but definitely harder. Most folks just by these colours premade (ie SatinIce).

If you make your own fondant for brown or black start by using cocoa powder to get it to be brown (you can darken this as needed).
Also if your making your own fondant and are planing on only having the one colour for the whole batch add your gel food colouring to the liquid before you add the liquid to the mixture.
