Does anyone know what colors might be used to make the shades of dusty pink found in this photo- http://cakecentral.com/g/i/2903394/http-www-facebook-com-sugarruffles/#order=38&albumId=63&nextId=2903398&prevId=false&imageId=2903394&imageESOId=6850426&fullUrl=%2Fg%2Fi%2F2903394%2Fhttp-www-facebook-com-sugarruffles%2F%2F&fullSrc=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn.cakecentral.com%2F9%2F92%2F900x900px-LL-929c9e13_Valentines3.jpeg&thumbSrc=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn.cakecentral.com%2F9%2F92%2F50x50px-ZC-929c9e13_Valentines3.jpeg&description=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fsugarruffles&original=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn.cakecentral.com%2F9%2F92%2F929c9e13_Valentines3.jpeg&setName=&urlSlug=http-www-facebook-com-sugarruffles

 

I PMed the submitted but they have not responded. The shades I get from my pink colors always are more pastel or bright, not this great antique-y look!

Thanks!

add brown in varying degrees to whatever colors you want for:

 

  1. a more realistic looking color
  2. a nice smokey look like the picture
  3. to lose the primary color feel

 

to have a good control on things use:

 

  1. brown food color
  2. brown tinted icing

 

some people recommend using copper for this effect too
