i need burgundy colored modelling chocolate. by the time i got done adding burgundy coloring to white chocolate, i would have lost the consistency i need. so i want to start with red candy melts or chocolate and try to doctor it to burgandy. is this possible? what colors would turn red or brown into burgundy? can anyone advise?
thank you so much!

I think you're on the right track with red and chocolate to get burgundy. I'd start with the red melted, add in some dark chocolate melted (just a bit at a time) and see what you get.

You could likely tweak the color once the modeling chocolate is made by adding little bits of blue and/or purple coloring to get it more burgundy. That should leave the texture intact.

thanks rae!
i only have one shot to get this right (timing-wise) so i don't have the materials to do tons of experimenting.
