Hi, I have only red, yellow, green, blue, brown & black food coloring. Is it possible to get a deep fuschia with these? TIA usaribbon.gif

As you did not have all of the colours mentioned, you could mix red and blue to get a purple and then add a small amout of yellow to lighten to a fuschia pink

I tried combining these colors, and I must not be doing the right amounts, and the plate they gava me was almost an electric pink, it almost clashed. So I used the closest I was able to, and ran out for Americolor airbrush electric colors, and painted it on top. It is the perfect match! Will post pics soon, after I thread on the ribbons. Thanks for all your answers, it got me quite close!

Its really hard to get a nice electric pink if all you have is red.... Glad you got it to work out fine for you!
