Our high school colors are maroon and white, so I have made it often enough. It takes gobs of coloring. Just keep at it. If your icing gets too thin from all the food coloring, you might have to compensate by adding more powdered sugar.

I had to mix maroon recently--I started with a lot of burgundy and added some purple and some red and a touch of black I think. I just kept adding things until it looked right.

Then the fondant got SO soft because there was so much color in there so I added some tylose and it made it workable again.
