I am wondering what is the best way to paint on fondant. I've tried both combinations, water & food color, and vodka & food color; and the food color clumped. Is there any away to avoid the clumping. Thanks
have you tried to thin out your color before you start painting?? Sounds like it is too thick maybe??
Try adding a dropper full (1/2 tsp.) of Vodka to a little dish, then dip the end of your brush into the paste color and gently stir into into the Vodka. It sounds like your using too much color. It really doesn't take much at all. It's always easier to add more if needed than to try thinning it out. Hope this helps.
I use vodka as it dries without being sticky.
I've never had clumping, what brand did you use? I've used both Wilton and Americolor.
I always use airbrush paint. You don't have to have an airbrush to use it. You can use it with a paintbrush.
I use vodka and wilton colors, though I have used water if there needs to be no alchol. The fishing cake in my photos was hand painted MMF
I have only tried it once to see how it goes (see cookie in my pics), but used the Americolor straight from the jar. Hmm, may have to try that vodka trick because it took a long time for the colors to dry and not be sticky.
