Welcome to CC. There are lots of wonderful people in here as you may already know.

I am not a professional but I do have a background in painting. I think it is a great start to invest in nice fine brushes--do consider the food safety though. I believe countrykitchensa carry some nice ones.

You can also use gel colors dilluted in vodka or extracts and air brush colors works fine as well.

Good luck.

thanks for your replies icon_smile.gif i have tried the vodka but wasnt as keen as the cocoa butter, would love to learn to airbrush, but its so expensive to buy one !!!! i might start saving !

Oh they really are expensive but you can also use the airbrush colors straight from the bottle to use for painting.

I either mix cocoa butter with petal dust or use gel colors in
vodka or lemon extract. It depends on what I am painting as to which I use. I haven't tried airbrush colors yet...
