I need to mix a burgundy/maroon color formula using only the original basic classic PREMO colors. I agreed to make a custom order using burgundy before I realized that all the burgundy colors in my recipe file use Alizarin Crimson, a color I no longer keep in stock. I live way far from a craft store so I'm hoping to be able to use the PC I have on hand. The closest I've come to mixing a burgundy is: 3 Raw Sienna: 3 Cad Red: 2 Ecru

Anybody out there have any other suggestions? TIA

Hi Anita!! I went and got out my color recipe book, hope I have something in it that will help you. Here are some ideas, maybe if you try pea-size mixes you'll see one that might work for you:

1 part Burnt Umber, 2 parts Fuchsia - I have this labeled in my book as "wine", so I'm not sure if you can get it to burgundy or not.

To get nearly to Alizarin Crimson, you might try Kato - 1 part Kato Red and 1 part Premo Violet.

Hmmm, don't have much for burgundy that doesn't use Alizarin... but I do have what I described in my note as "purple red", 1 part Cad Red & 1 part Ultra blue.

I hope some of this may help, or at least be a starting point for you. Wish I had more! I checked my Premo color chips but nothing I could describe as Burgundy. Good luck!

Hi Jackie, Thanks so much for sharing the alchemy of your recipe collection stash! I made color samples from your recipes for the two that use just PREMO and the Wine is perfect. Just had to add a tiny bit of Kato white to it and it's a direct match for the team jersey I was trying to match. Thanks so much, dear one!

Hugs, Anita in AZ

Hi Anita - Yay! This makes me totally happy too, that I could help you after all you do for all of us here at PCC.

Hope we get to see what you make! Have fun. You're very welcome!

Hugs, Jackie
