Please help. I've mixed my gumpaste and added some Wilton Rose color. It's HOT PINK! How do I get more of a fuschia color?

I always think of fuschia as a pink/purple color. Have you added a VERY small amount of Wilton's lavender color to it?

I tried Wilton red...lavender..dusty pink....not getting fuschia. It's either really pink , red, or purple. Uuuugh!

I would say, getting fuschia from hot pink, I would add purple. maybe some red. if it was not getting deep enough, maybe a drop of royal blue.

I needed this color the other day and I spent 2 days trying to get it. Nothing worked so I did a lighter pink and deep pink centers in my flowers. You can see in my photos of the wedding cake I posted. I think Americolor sells it.

Thanks for that link. My bride's colors are fuschia and gold. So glad I don't have to wear that bridesmaid dress!
