About 3/4 of my colors have gone missing and I need to make a fall flower burgandy shade - what colors would I use for that without it just becoming purple?

i'm wondering if americolor has that shade. let me check. i would think though to make burgundy you'd use the darkest red you can with a little black? .... will be looking for you!

I think I used red red and black and came out with a beautiful burgundy. Tiny increments of black at a time. I finally learned that using the flat side of a spatula to cream the colors together works much nicer than stirring it in with a spoon. Stirring it together I was getting a weird shiny icing I didn't want to use on my cakes.

Hey Judi,

There are a few mixing charts floating around on CC. Here's a link that I think has 3 or 4 charts in it. You'll find 2 on the first page and you'll have to go to page 2 or 3 for the other.
