don't think it's the answer your looking for, but I made a deep purple this weekend. I used violet and then added red and blue a little at a time till I got a really deep purple.

Check out this link and look at the majestic purple. Is this the color you need? I would suggest buying some of this as they have an excellent reputation and the purples do not bleed or change colors. They stand the test of time!!

Good luck and hope this helps!

I had to make some purple bows for a wedding cake recently and decided to order colored fondant to avoid just this issue. They did fade only slightly when dried but polishing them up with shortening brightened them back up again!

That being said I started using Americolor gels (you can get them at Hobby Lobby or Global Sugar Art) recently and they seem to hold their color well in fondant.
