I'm trying to get a deep orange color of bc.  I added orange Americolor and electric orange... could I add a bit of red to deepen it???   Has anybody else done this?


Thanks in advance.

How much orange did you use?  Maybe you just need to add more.

If that doesn't do it, try adding a bit of red &/or brown.  Go easy on these though.

Also: how long has it been since you added color?  Deep/dark colors will darken over time.  Let it sit several hours or overnight.

When I color deep orange, I begin with coloring it until it has the right "depth" using red and then add yellow to make it orange. HTH

I added the orange color a few hours ago. I added almost a whole americolor bottle,

I think maybe I'll try adding a touch of red??  eeks.
