okay...so I got the order for this 3D clutch purse...The color the customer tells me is a blood red brown.The picture on the web looks black.I told her I would try and achieve the color but man ...How do I make that color..It's gonna look gross and I am not wasting fondant to try and get the color right.

Anyone make that color before..What did you use?

Thanks Laurel thumbs_up.gif

If you use too much Americolor super red when you're painting on fondant, it darkens to kind of a brownish dried blood color when it dries.

Yeah I'm gonna start with red but do I add brown?
