Are you using the Americolor Electric colors?

I've used the Wilton colors before...had to add the regular pink with the Neon pink to make it dark enough. If you don't have time to order any of the Americolor Electric colors, there are some neon colors at grocery stores in little tubes (next to cake mixes) that I have used before to mix with gel colors. Seems to work pretty good..... what colors are you trying to get? Sometimes you can mix the gel colors and get a neon...depending on the color you're trying to get.
