I have to do a dark blue and I thinned it with water and it seems not to be drying on the fondant, was I to use vodka? I've never airbrushed for a cake before , how do you thin the gel colors to airbrush? Thanks for any and all help!!!!!!
Hi, I'd like to know also for futre reference...but I dont work in fondant...we fight...lol
But when i airbrush on my B/C cakes...I for example put 3 drops of Americolor AirBrush color into my pen, and then i have a small bottle and I spray in 2-3 squirts...makes my color flow better and spreads better for me. Ive only used Vodka when Im hand painting on the b/c.
water doesn't really dry on fondant and dissolves it. i would use an alcohol based liquid like vodka when painting or use an airbrush coloring used specially for airbrushing on cakes.
For airbrushing I prefer Everclear but have also used vodka...anything with a high alcohol content will dry quite quickly.
i,ve never used anything , but airbrush colors in my airbrush.. i thin with everclear to paint with a brush on fondant. but always use airbrush colors in my airbrush..
