I need to make navy blue and burgundy. I wanted to airbrush it on. I have seen that Americolor has those colors but do they really work? If not, how can I optain the colors I need? What do I need to mix?

I have never used the burgundy...I think there's a color chart on CC somewhere that might help. I have used the navy blue color many times. I always color my fondant first a dark blue if I can, then airbrush over that with the navy and it works great. I have a couple pics of cakes with navy blue fondant. Good luck! One more tip...I always "practice" airbrushing on a small piece of fondant first before spraying the whole cake, just so you know you've got the right color.
