I am looking to make red hair but am having trouble producing a nice, rich red color. Have any of you made red fondant hair and care to share what colors you used? Thanks!
Since it’s so hard to get a vibrant red without adding a huge amount of coloring, I usuallly just start with Satin Ice red and then add a smidge of brown depending on what kind of red I want. I also usually buy blue and black fondant already colored for the same reasons...
you might want to consider painting the hair -- y'know color it as red as you can get then paint
I made a super deep rich red with ton of red and some black and who knows what all else but it was gum paste and it stayed a little limp but I made deep red roses out of it -- mighta been black powdered color
I use Wilton Copper gel color.
