Does anyone know what is the ratio of water to powder?
You don't mention what you are planning to use it for... painting, coloring frosting? I don't have a formula, but my method is adding just a little water at a time until it looks right. I know, stupid answer. Seriously though. If I'm making it into a paste-like consistency, it might be a 1/2 teaspoon of powder and two/three drops of water. It's truly just something you have to experiment with. It's never wrong... if you get it too watered down, add more powder, and visa verse if it's too thick, add more powder.
gosh I didn't know you had to add water to it, I just add to my bc a tiny bit at a time and mix really good till I get the color I want. Never had a problem and I just use it for coloring icing.
Dolfin, that's fine... water is not needed necessarily. I just find that when I use powder to paint, it's easier if I dilute it with a little water first, then I have no grittiness to deal with. As well, it just seems to mix into fondant quicker (for me) when it's wet. I use it dry in buttercream, however.
thanks Win, hadn't thought to use it for painting I use the gel and don't really like the quality, course I don't do it often. I use it dry in my fondant also, may live on the wild side and use as a paste just to see the diffrence.
i was painting on fondant...i ended up just messing around with it for a while it as ok!
