Is it possible to change the color of a gumpaste flower already dried? It is a white flower I want to make ivory. I do not have an airbrush. Is there another way? Thanks in advance.

you can dust with petal dust.

Petal dust is the way to go. It will change the color subtley and give the flower a nice sparkle.

Alternatively you can buy small cans of edible spray to colour items, these are aerosols and do not require a spray gun.

If the flower is made on wire you can dip it.
Mix gel color in lots of vodka (or similar alochol). Make sure it is well mixed and no color is unmixed at the bottom. Keeps forever in a well sealed jar. This jar should be short w/a *wide* mouth.
*Quickly* dip flower into mixture; twirl well to shake off excess liquid and hang flower upside down to dry.
