Flood your base color, then pipe your dots pretty much immediately after flooding the base. They will sink in to the base color. Easy peasy.

While I haven't used this technique in a while, I don't remember ever having a problem with bleeding. I've piped white on red and they turned out okay.

You can see on the O's that I waited a bit too long and ended up with a bump on the dots. Don't wait, just pipe away! icon_smile.gif You can also pipe multiple dots inside each other. I've done that and it looks cute. You will really stump people as to how it's done if you do that! hee hee.

love this technique. I sometimes also "drag" the dots with a toothpick, so they look like little hearts. everyone is always so impressed!

Hey, you could use that drag method for spider-webs, Halloweens just around the corner!
