Hello! I'm trying to make a paint that I can use on fondant. I would like it to of course be edible, but I need it to have a consistency such as acrylic paint. I have searched online and mostly found ideas that won't dry or will be too sticky. I don't own a compressor and would like to do this by hand. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Try gel colors thinned out with vodka. You can also thin it with water. The less liquid (vodka or water) you use, the thicker your "paint" will be.

I agree with the PP. I would use the vodka though, because the alcohol helps it to dry faster than water. HTH!

Thanks for the advice! My concern is being able to use pastel colors with that method? What would be used as "white?" Would royal icing work? Thanks again!

Just add a dot of white gel color to your "paint" and that will make a pastel out of any color.
