Please I hope someone can help.  I am making a wedding cake for Sat March 23.  I am working on gumpaste roses.  The first patch are beautiful. The second batch are beautiful except the gumpaste is not the same color is an orangy pink!!  I ordered red gumpaste so I wouldn't have to worry about getting the red the perfect color and the containers are different colors.  The deep red is what I want and the reason I ordered it.  Now what do I do.  I have half orange pink red roses and half deep red roses. All containers are marked RED.  Ughhhhh...just not what I there any help?!!  Thanks!

Aif you have an airbrush could you spray over them to darken them up once they are dry?

Don't have an airbursh, but thanks.  What about the wilton color mist or red pearl luster?  Do y'all think one of those would work?
