You can use what is called Everclear which is a high alcohol content liquid but is hard to find but I use vodka or white rum and it works just the same.The alcohol evaporates so there is not taste or smell.

I've only used (McCormick's) orange extract, which has an 80% alcohol content, and it works great.

Could flavor extracts work? I've done that with small designs on BC.

Everclear here too - I have to go to KY to get it, not allowed for sale in Ohio.

I have used vanilla extract on fondant & it doesn't seem to dry very well, whatever I'm painting stays sticky...

I just use whatever vodka is on sale at the liquor store, everything dries great, no problems.

I use vodka. Also use it in the airbrush to spray cakes to clear off cornstarch after decorating. gives nice clean look

Vodka, gin, anything with high ALC content.
