I know you can use luster dust on it, Has it dried completely? I have painted small portions nothing that big. Luster dust might look better it comes in different colors. With luster dust you can paint it dry or wet. I'm thinking actual color may be too wet and it will break.

I have painted RI with color mixed w/a lemon extract. There was a lot for me to have to paint, but it worked well for me. I did a cake with a Celtic design, and they wanted it old and antique looking, just make sure that you don't use too much at one time on it, and you should be fine. Post a final pic when you are done. I really like the design so far. Good luck.

These cookies are covered in royal and I painted the flowers on them just using americolor colors straight out of the bottle......I wonder if you'd get a streaky look on something as big as you're working on though??

thanks everyone! KH I love those cookies! I think I will try it, its is not going to be delivered untill tomorrow so if it messes it up I will have time to redo the screen I guess. It doesnt have to be totally black, just enough to take the shock of the white off I guess! Thanks guys!
