how do i paint with food coloring? do i just use food coloring to paint fondant or do i mix something with it? if so what do i use? I'm making a treasure chest and i want the wood to look like acual wood any suggestions?
You can use regular gel colors and thin it with clear alcohol. To make it look like wood, I have seen (on TV) that they use a fan brush to create the pattern.
I have a baby figurine I would like to colour. What kind of gel colours? The same gel colours used to colour fondant? What kind of alcohol? Sorry this is my first attempt. I am a newbie and I would like to start painting on my cakes. Thanks
yeh you can use the wilton or americolor gel pastes to paint with and can use everclear or a vodka to mix it with them.
Also make sure you don't mix too much alcohol or you will end up with a very watercolour look, unless that is what you are going for
clear vanilla works as well as vodka....
Thanks everyone. I will try.
