Using Nurture micas ( I have most of them) how do I get that cranberry color? Without ordering it because it’s too late for that.

Add a little bit of black colorant (I used black oxide) in with your favorite red. I never got a perfect cranberry color, but it was close enough (sorry, I don't have any photos). Add just a bit of black at a time. Hope this helps!

Use the color blender on the Nurture website. Do you have My Red Obsession?

I have trial by fire, red raspberry and the first custom red mix Carrie made. And black mica. I'll see about dark blue too. I'm planning a candy cane shop so I should just make an extra 4 ounces of batter and test colors.

I think it has more of a purple tone than blue. I'll take a closer look at my merlot today once the sun comes up
