Alot of people use what's called the One Stroke type of painting. They offer these classes at craft stores. HTH!

I don't know what others do but for my first this march, I traced a pattern on to paper. Then using the pin prick method traced the pattern onto the cake. Then I traced the pattern with edible marker. For paints, I used my food colour diluted with water and used that to paint directly on the cake. The stonger the coour the less water I used.

Hopes this helps.

There are several different painting styles out there such as onestroke, airbrush, cocoa, impasto etc....... I suggest you purchase this book:

Painting on Sugar (Sugarcraft Skill Series) by Lesly Herbert and Jean Hodgkinson

Or check out these cakes and find one you like and PM the artist.

You can use your regular buttercream colors. You dilute them with vodka and get variations in the same color the more vodka you add the lighter. If you want a stronger base you add some white color to it.
