what is the best method to do this.. i tried w. a baby shower cake i did and i used clear tequila in color paste and it kinda bleeds into the fondant a lil more then i'd like.. i have an upcoming cake where i need to paint poker chips onto circle white fondant as well as s chicago cubs symbol... any suggestions?? cant u PM me as i dont get to come on the site often?!?
I use powder colors with lemon extract.
ill have to give that a shot...anyone else??
I love airbrush colors for painting. They are already thinned down and dry well.
If your colors bled you may have thinned it down too much??
I paint with paste colours mixed in alcohol and don't have any bleeding. I think that either your colour is watered down too much or your fondant isn't dry enough first.
The alcohol evaporates quite quickly so if you do add too much just wait a few minutes until it's thickened.
Hello to all, I have a dumb question...at what point do you paint your gumpaste??? before you work with it or after is applied on your cake or you've modeled your figure??? I need black gumpaste and I've noticed they only sell white gumpaste..
Ok, thank you to all!!!
I also use paste colors with very little water, wet my brush, wipe it down and paint. Never bled and always dried well. I only use alcohol to powdered stuff, like my lusters and such.
