Does anyone know what colors to mix together to get magenta? I have tried the deep pink and red and get raspberry but it just isn't right. Any suggestions would be appreciated. TIA

Here you can buy a burgundy or a Terracotta.. maybe lighten the burgundy?

Americolor has a color that is in their neon colors set. I think its Hot Pink, and they mean HOT PINK. If you wanted to tone that down a little you could add a bit of burgandy to that or some brown.

Red, with a small amount of blue, make magenta. (I've been working with it for the last couple of days, making a wedding cake.)
