Hey everyone! I need advice on how to stop black RI from bleeding into the other colors. I am going to make some simple yellow smilies with thin black eyes and smiles. How can I prevent the black from bleeding onto the yellow? I would really love your help!
Try not to oversaturate the icing when you mix in the black. The best advice I can give is to let the base color set up a crust before you add the black.
My experience with the bleeding has been when the base coat has not been dry (that is your yellow). I would do what GeminiRJ said or go a step further by letting the yellow completely dry before you add the black details. Maybe you could try one first and see how it comes out before you do the whole batch. Good luck!
When I work with Royal Icing with colors that will bleed I usually let the bottom color set overnight before I add the next color. This usually helps to stop the colors from bleeding.
Great advice! Thanks for your feedback!
