I want to paint features on a gumpaste baby mold, what is the best way? I tried straight wilton colors, but it was still tacky after a few days, please help.

Welcome ladybug!

If you mix a little vodka in with the colors, it will dry faster and be a little easier to paint.

How about edible pens?

Thanks, I tried the pens... you have to have a really light hand but they are good, I will try the vodka. Would extract work?
