I purchased some satin ice black fondant because I didn't want the headache of trying to make black fondant for a bow. I got the loops for the bow made and I'm planning to make beads for the border around the cake using the black as well, but it's drying grayish.... how can I get the black color back or give it a less matte finish?

I have americolor super black coloring... could I paint the loops with that to bring the color back? Thanks in advance!

Did you roll it out on cornstarch or powdered sugar? I know that doing either of those often changes the color of the fondant as it dries, generally making it a lighter color. I don't know about painting it, as it runs a high chance of either getting sticky or having streaks in it. Maybe airbrushing if you have that option. I'm probably not really helping though.

i didn't use powdered sugar or cornstarch. I rolled it out on a piece of upholstery vinyl. I don't have an airbrush either. Thanks for the help though.
