I think so. Last week I did that, but with vanilla because I don't have vodka, and it worked out just fine.

vodka or clear vanilla work just fine for painting with icing colors or dusts. Looking forward to seeing the picture of the cake.

Definitely will be ok. Depending on your brand of gel coloring you may not need any thinner either. I use Americolor gels straight and they work well. I have found I need to thin the wilton though in order to paint with it.
