I really want to try making IMBC or SMBC , but I was wondering if you can tint it . If so Can you use Wilton color paste to tint the BC ?

I've tinted IMBC before. It was a light green and I used the Wilton colors. I've read here that it does not take bold colors well and that candy colors work better.

Yes, you need to use candy colors (they are oil based). Water based colors bead up inside the icing.

I always tint my IMBC with gel colors and never have a problem.
