I'm looking at making a beige teddy bear topper out of fondant/gumpaste. I have brown gel, and I'm wondering if I can somehow use that to paint the nose, eyes and mouth a dark brown??

Thanks for any advice. icon_smile.gif[/center]

Sure can! Mix with a little alcohol (vodka, gin) or lemon extract. The alcohol will evaporate quickly.

IF you don't want to use alcohol or extract you can use light corn syrup. I used it on one of my cakes it is glossy.
