    Thanks. I wish I could recall the exact mix. I started with a small amount of white and added cherry red til I had a pretty bright pink. Then I added a tiny amount of black to get the color in the right temperature and warm it up a bit. Then a tiny amount of amber to get the hue right. Once I did that I added the mixed color back into a larger amount of white until I had the right brightness and a good match.

    The key is to work with small amounts and add it back into the white once you have the color you want. Good luck.
