Oh I could scream...I have been working on small fondant animals all night and my 2 year old ruined them. I had painted dots of black for eyes, nose, etc. She found them, and now her hands, face, and everything else is black! Grrr...
I know I have read that I should mix the color with vodka. Now I'm a bit confused with what kind of color...gel, powder? I have black Wilton gel color. Can I combine this with vodka? What consistency should it be? How long should it take to dry?
If it's black gel, you can just paint it as-is, but for quicker drying time you can put a couple drops of vodka with a tiny bit of the black and you should be good to go.
I use a shot glass (and NO I'm not a big drinker! LOL) for mixing my colors in.
I learned a biiiiiig lesson last night. Unmixed red dries to look like caked blood. Barf!
