I am in a panic. I made little colour flow* lady bugs. I used Wilton black gel colour to make the dots etc. It's not drying and I need to put them on a cake
tomorrow evening. Basically I've got 24 hours to dry the little bugs. I've been holding a cool hair dryer on them for 20 minutes and no noticeable difference.
Anybody have any idea what I can do.
*really thinned out royal - is that the same as colour flow??
I use RI for my color flow as well I let mine dry overnight. It should be ok. Just put them on right before you need then. HTH
Sorry I should have been more specific - it's actually the colour gel that's not drying.
I've only got 12 hours left to dry the little creatures. They didn't dry much over night at all
You should have no problems handling them after 24 hrs. I'm guessing the humidity of your area is effecting the drying process.
Are the spots really that big that you can't find a couple places to put your fingers w/o touching the black? Can't you slip a spatula under them the support w/a finger to transper/place them? I'm just not understanding how it can be such a problem.
They are very tiny, so there is no way I can pick them up without smudging. The black tip on the end is the most problem as the black gel will touch the buttercream cake and I'm afraid it will run.
