Can anyone tell me what you use for the coloring for airbrushing on fondant and gumpaste? diluted food coloring or is there a specific product/s you use for airbrushing.
Also for painting on fondant? I have used diluted gel/coloring but is there something that is more concentrated that you use?
any help would be appreciated thanks!
for airbrushing you use airbrush color. Purchase it in botles - lots of different suppliers.
For paintint on fondant, I generally make my paint from dusts and a clear alcohol like clear vanilla.
As leahs said You definately need to get commercially made air brushing food colors. There is no way to make it yourself.
I bought a multi-pack of airbrush color for about $20 - I think there were 10 colors and from there, you can make anything. I use the same for handpainting, since I already have it. Just use vodka to dilute and go to town.
I have heard of people using gel colors mixed with vodka to paint if you don't have the airbrush colors. I am a lazy person so I like the ease of just squirting color instead of having to mix each "batch" of color.
I use Kroma Kolors...I've never had it gum up my airbrush gun and it goes on the cake really well.
The only problem I've come across with it is that if you spray too much in one place it will run. But that is probably a problem with all airbrushing.
