I've never used it. I have used airbrush white colorant.

Does anyone know if the airbrush could be used in a recipe that calls for the white coloring? It's called for in a poured fondant recipe for a more opaque look.
Could someone who has used the Wilton White tell me what its' consistency is like and if you have to shake before using(I'm just trying to determine how close it might be to the airbrush color.

No one has tried the Wilton white white? I thought I was the only one in the woods on this one...

Well, I've never used it to colour icing or in an airbrush. I have used it to "water" down other colours for painting on fondant. It's sort of like milk I would say. It's not as thick as a typical Wilton gel colour. It's not consistency of Elmer's glue, I don't think.

Yes, this is the Wilton white white. Unlike the gel colours, it comes in a flip-top squirt bottle (which I don't think their gel colours could do). It is like milk - I use 1% milk, and I would say it's similar to that.

I'm gonna try it...what's the worse that could happen, right? It won't turn out with the airbrush color and I'll have to break down and by the Wilton white white(which means traveling 30 plus miles to the nearest store that might carry it and spending excess money on stuff I want but don't need)?
