How do you make icing a true red?

Wilton's website states it can take as much as 1oz of red gel paste colouring to make 1 cup of icing red. After all red+white=pink. When colouring white buttercream other colours can only take a fraction of the colour required, compared to red. Do perservere. It can be done!. Colours will deepen on standing over a couple of hours, although not from light pink to red.
