For all you airbrush/cake artists out there, if I wanted to airbrush a white rose to make it red what colors would you suggest using and in what order? I want a little more depth than I would get by just using red gumpaste. Or should I start w/red gumpaste and just airbrush to add highlights? I have only used an airbrush once before so I'm a little nervous.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Well.I have come to learn that Americolor Super Red is quite a deep darker red kinda muted..so I add a drop of yellow to brighten it up.The Royal blue is this way also..Sprays very dull.You may want to make red gumpaste to give the centres a darker hue the spray the flower on a low PSI.
