AI made some eggplant colored gumpaste. I thought it was pretty close to what I wanted, but when I roll it out with a little extra cornstarch it seems it's a lot lighter. Any suggestion on how to brighten up my color after the flowers are dried, or while I'm working on them?

ADust with purple petal dust and steam to set the colour. The color will pop :)

AI will need to try that. Right now I'm pretty worried, my flowers look grey. Hopefully I can figure this out before Saturday.

AHi mattyeatcakes, your idea helped me a lot. I had some purple petal dust and mixed it with some red gel. I diluted it with vanilla and painted it on. It really made the color look richer, but they have a little bit of shine. I can live with that. Thanks
