Hi everyone, I have a project in which I want to colour fondant a dark eggplant colour. I was thinking of using violet and a touch of black, but would I also need a touch of red? Please let me know. Thanks.

that should work. Dark royal purple by americolor is good. You might not need the red, only a tiny amount of black to get that darkness needed.

Thanks Tesso, I've made my fondant dk violet so far using Wilton's gel colour (don't have Americolor). Haven't added the black yet, but from looking at it I think I may need just a touch of red.

Question about Americolor: is it gel or liquid?
