I'd really appreciate if someone can please tell me how do I get this dark purple in chocolate/candy melts, and also where I could find the dark purple sugar sprinkles - 

 

 

 

I know this pic above is airbrushed, but how do I get the shade of dark purple that is drizzled, and also the dark purple sugar?

 

 

Thank you!!!

AI got a similar color as the bottom one when I made modeling chocolate with candy melts last night. I used pink and red melts an colored with violet, blue, and purple powders.

Thank you MustangMollie! Will adding violet color to purple candy melts work? Not sure if powders will work.. :-/

AI have no idea sorry. Last night was the first time I've done anything with chocolate.

FWIW I coloured the melts before I added the corn syrup so I would think it should work for you. If you want to use purple melts (which I would have too but my local shop was out of stock) I would add people melts and white melts to get a light to medium purple then add the coloured powders to adjust the people to the exact colour that you want.

... but these are thoughts from a newbie. Hopefully someone with more experience will come in :)
