It "shouldn't" be an issue as long as you keep the 3:1 DI Water to concentrate ration the same, however, you will probably be much happier getting the exact color pastel, or adding dyes to the pastel to get your color (you have much more control this way as well)
Blueberry pastel with deep red dye to get purple test I did earlier
Honestly I think having some blue dye or the regular dye would have made it better (deep red made it too dark too fast). Or starting with white or pink or something on the red sideEdited by cyphon - 8/27/13 at 2:09pm
