I'm not sure where to go from here. icon_sad.gif My fondant is brick red, and it's dark enough red, but just not the bright red I was looking for. It's too dull. Is there a color I can add to brighten it up, do I need to add more white fondant? Help please! TIA

I wish I could help you with this one, maybe you should paint it?

I used Chefmaster no-taste tulip red with some brown, black, and violet. I was going for a dark red. I just added some deep pink, though, and now it looks really good, a deep dark red that's not too dull. It's truly by accident that I finally got a good color! I'm pretty happy with it now, but we'll see what happens when I wake up tomorrow....maybe it will be too dark then. I guess in that case I'll just add some white?

buy satin ice red. Its really bright - just add a little black or brown to get it more of a brick color.
