I am new to this website but have been doing cakes for about a year. I find that when I paint on cakes and even when I airbrush them, they tend to look wet. Why is this and how can I prevent this look? I'm using Wilton food color and Americolor airbrush color. Thanks!
I've never really painted with airbrush colors other than with gold and silver but with the gel colors, they will tend to dry with a shine. If you want to eliminate the shine, I suggest you use petal dust dilluted in alcohol--or maybe, just maybe the gel will dry out fine if you added enough alcohol.
