Gel food coloring and paint brushes on fondant. Depedning on the color depth you need & effect, you may mix it with vodka. I don't have a crusting buttercream, so I don't paint on buttercream.

I personally like to use airbrush colors to paint with. IF I want them lighter, use something with a HIGH alcohol content (I use everclear) it works out great.

If you just use gel colors, they will never completely dry.

The things I painted with gel colors dried, of course these were details, so maybe thats why they dried. I tried everclear and for some reason, it just wouldn't blend well with the gel colors. But to the OP I hope you find all this info. helpful.

I would use airbrush colors, so you don't need to worry about diluting anything. You just dip your brush straight into the airbrush color and use it to paint with.
