Trying to get bright fuchsia on gum paste, help please.

Hello Fellow Cakers!
I need to attain a bright fuchsia on some gum paste orchids. I want the yellow to be bright as well. I've tried petal dust mixed with vodka and couldn't get it a uniform color kinda turned out blotchy. I then tried air brushing, nice and uniform but couldn't get a pretty, accurate color. I must be doing something wrong. Any ideas out there?? Thanks icon_smile.gif

you can buy fuschia gumpaste cos it is a very difficult colour to get exact. Or dust it in stages (steaming in between) and you might get close.
