I use Wilton's icing colours, and mix it with extract or vodka.

I use Americolor gels, straight up (no thinning). The only time I thin them out is if I'm going for a light, watercolor effect.

I agree. Americolor gels turn out nice on fondant, either thinned out for a softer color or as is.

I paint with Americolor and Wilton right onto the fondant. I have found that if you are careful when you mess up you can wipe away your mistake and start over. Sometimes it takes a few swipes with a clean(each time) damp paper towel but it will come right off..LOL And then I start again. I must have painted Marie's eyes five times before I finally gave in and left her alone. Darker colors will take more to get them off bu wipe gently and let it dry-has worked for me.
