I just mix mine until it have a nice creamy texture. If it is still to thick just add more extract.
Maybe someone else can be more clear on this, but this works for me.

I was taught to use clear vanilla to attach fondant pieces to each other.
As, far as paiting I just use staright color or mix with water. I will try clear vanilla today my daughter is making me make her a pumpkin cake.
