What have folks used to get the right shade of red for an Elmo figure?
I am doing an Elmo fbct next week, I would like to know too.
Don't know if this will help or not.
Americolor has a color called Holiday red. It came in my little bottles for my airbrush. It's the perfect color. They have the same color in the regular bottles.
Otherwise you need to build to the color you want. I don't actually know how to do this right.
This definitely needs people with more experience.
Elmo is a red with more yellow in it. I don't know how to explain it. That's just what I see when I see colors.
No taste red and orange. You can look in my photos to see the elmo I did. It takes a good bit of red.
I too did an elmo cake recently. I used fondant, and just used wilton red red. It worked great for me. If you want to check my photos, I have a cute elmo cake. I made it 2d and stuck the fondant on a stick and had it sitting on top of the cake with a bunch of balloons on wires (SOOO cute! I don't know who came up with that idea first but I love it!). I hope that helps a little. Good Luck!
