I am doing some bamboo steamer baskets which I made using fondant tinted in a yellowish colour. So far so good. I then decided to add some texture and depth by hand painting the baskets with some darker colour diluted in lemon extract. Now after having looked at them for a while I don't really like it very much, they look at bit dark to me. I have tried to remove some of the colour by brushing more alcohol over and rubbing lightly with a paper towel. It is sort of working but it is not taking enough colour off.
Is this way the only way I can remove colour, or can I do it another way?
Pearl dust really covers things up sorta--try it on a tiny spot--it's also kinda shiney/pearly too of course. But it can mute color somewhat.
k8memphis, good idea, I did not think of dusts. I have to go rummage through my stuff to see if I have a non-pearly one I can use.
See if you have the dust color cappuccino. I'm sure that will work for you. It's a very pale tan.
