I need a few gumpaste roses for this weekend...they need to be really dark red, almost black...know what I mean? What colors do I need to buy to get that shade?

I ended up with that shade once by accident when I painted them with a mix of americolor super red and vodka. It looked dark red when wet, but the next day it was more of a burgandy black.
