I have been trying to mix the colour burgundy and it's not dark enough. Looks like a ligher version of what i need. I am using buttercream.

I am using red and brown are these the right colours to make Burgundy???

Are you looking for the color in my avatar? Or perhaps the color of these roses?

My avatar is Americolor Maroon with a touch of Red Red and Americolor Black.

My roses are Americolor Red Red and Black.
