I just checked out their website, and their prices are competitive, and their shipping appears to be cheaper, too...but are they always "out of stock" on a lot of things, or did I just hit it at a bad time? icon_confused.gif

OMG! You all are my new BFFs!! I was about to cry at the thought of tinting by hand. I tried Global Sugar Art and I was thoroughly surprised. I also tried Fondant Source but they are out of stock icon_sad.gif

I keep 2# buckets of premade Satin Ice black, red, and dark chocolate on hand at all times. Their gumpaste is good too.

So my black SI shipped today! yay!! icon_smile.gif
Now - question: Does it bleed when applied to BC icing?
And...I'm doing zebra stripes - do I put them on before or after the BC crusts?
(can you tell I don't do a lot of fondant stuff? icon_wink.gif

No, it will not bleed.

I wait for the bc to crust so that I can smooth, so I apply fondant accents post-crusting. Brush water to the back of the cut-outs and apply to the bc. Not too much water, though.
