I know with paint I can mix purple and yellow to get a brown color, but I don't know if it would work with food color. You can try a mix of the two on a small piece of fondant and see what it comes out like.

Red and green make brown.

Good luck! x

Also mix the color into piping gel if you need it thick. Black/purple/orange will make dark brown.

Thank you all for the replies. I ended up using a mix of Wilton Red-Red, Royal Blue, and Golden Yellow and got this color...
