Powdered colour is the way to go for deep hues. It doesn't make the fondant sticky or change the texture.

I haven't tried this but it looks interesting. I heard that powder colors work great in coloring buttercream in bright and bold colors too.

I only use MMF and have made it in dark colors using candy melts for black, brown and red. And I have mixed the candy clay in with the MMF.

I used this method last night to make black fondant using the Wilton dark cocoa candy melts instead of the red ones. I then added a small amount of super black food color and it was perfect! Handled great and tasted fantastic - just like a tootsie roll. I can't wait til I need red or another intense color. http://sugarsweetcakesandtreats.blogspot.com/2010/11/recipe-red-marshmallow-fondant-mmf.html

If you make MMF, and need a large amount of a dark color, add the paste color before you add the PS to the recipe and it comes out beautifully. I make Black and Red this way with no problems, and it is so much easier than kneading in the colors later!
