For more intricate molds (fairies, flowers, babies, etc), how do you color them? Do you just do a mold in white gumpaste/fondant and then hand paint them? Or, do you layer colors on like you do for candy molds? I'm looking at a few cool ones online but I'm not sure how to go about using them. Many thanks.
Most people would color them once it is out of the mold.
when i use the first impressions baby mold. i tinted my fondant/g/p skin color.. after it dried. i touched it up with flesh color dust and lite pink on the cheeks...hth
