I am trying to make a "ketchup" red color and no matter how much red I had I keep coming up with a pink.......HELP please
Red is a hard color to get right. I have to a entire 1oz bottle in order to get a deep red.
Hiya ~ If you have time, let it sit, overnight if possible. This works for black too. HTH!
thank you both.....unfortunetly I don't have all night...but will let it sit the rest of the day and see what color I end up with...thank you both....
Hi, I found this in the wilton page It might help you a little bit...good luck...
If you have access to Americolor brand colors, get Super Red. It's awesome! Requires much less than Wilton to achieve a bright red color. Otherwise, I would suggest starting with pink, and if you are using Wilton, use No Taste Red since large amounts of other Wilton reds leave a bad taste. Also, as a PP said, the color will deepen over time.
I agree with Puff. Even if you can't use it now, switch to Americolor gels. They are SO much better than Wilton for deepness and true shades and you have to use very little. "Super Red" and "Super Black" are the best. I will NEVER go back. Hope everything works out now. Good luck
