How do you get a real hot pink color? I can get a bright pink, but I need a hot pink. Any tips?
Americolor has an electric Pink you could try. I have tried the Electric Green and it comes out lime green.
Maybe try Rose pink with a tint of Red.(I haven't tried it!)Or even Rose with a tint of black or brown.
I've only just got my Americolor 'student kit' in the post and I've tried the fuschia and deep pink. The deep pink came out kind of flouro on the small piece of gumpaste I coloured. And the fuschia was a darker, but bright, pink. Perhaps you could combine the two, maybe with some red or black if it's not dark or 'hot' enough.
I guess it'll just take a bit of experimentation!
Thanks! I think I am going to try the tint of red first, but I think I am going to have to get some Americolors for next time.
Just a drop of red works well.
Wilton's Rose makes a fabulous hot pink color. Easy to find, Michael's carries it. You can look at my photos and take a look at the quinceniera cake I made. It was a bright hot pink, looked great.
I used Americolor's Deep Pink for the flip-flop cookies in my pics. I really like the shade it gave me.
I used the Wilton rose color to get the hot pink I needed for a 1st birthday cake a couple of weeks ago and it turned out exactly how they wanted.
Wilton's Rose color makes bright pink(See my puppy/kitty cakes).
