I've seen on different cakes programs on TV where the decorators hand paint the details on fondant cakes. What kind of paint is used for hand painting? Is it the same as the paint that would be used in an airbrush?

Please let me know your thoughts and suggestions!! icon_biggrin.gif

what she ^^^^ she said. You can use the airbrush colours directly (not necessary to dilute it first) and you can mix vodka/everclear/extracts with petal/luster dusts as well.
