Hi hoping someone can help me quickly with this,
I have been asked to make a cake with a sugarpaste greyhound on it, and i have just been messing about to see if could mould it and i think i have cracked it!!
problem is i am worried i cant do it again and would like to add colour to the currently white undetailed sugarpaste model!
i only have paste and liquid food colouring, can i paint it straight onto the model or will i have to try and copy what i have done with pre coloured sp?
also if i do colour it now do i need to allow it to dry out first or do it whilst its still tacky
thanks in advance!
a true beginner!!!
You can paint with either but you probably get more of a watercolor look with the liquid and it might breakdown your sp due to all the liquid. Probably paste or if you have an airbrush would be the better choice.
thank you so much for your quick reply, i will use the paste, im still too much of a newbie to own an airbrush
should i do it now whilst its still tacky? or does it not matter
You might want it to dry slightly so that it doesn't become too mushy with the added paint. Hope it turns out well.
