I have always had great success making that flame orange by combining flo orange and flo pink.  Usually at a ratio of about 2-3 orange to 1 pink.  Then add a tiny bit of white to make it more opaque. Not too much white or you get tomato soup. Also remember this color brightens alot as it cools so be patient as your checking your results.  Be sure your not using bleeding colors so your gold belly does not get stained.

This make a neat merthiolate color if you can keep it transparent. Try a wee bit of gold or blue hi lite in this, you may surprise yourself. Personally I like the blue better. This make a super good fire-tail color for blue, purple and brown baits.
