I do alot of painting on modeling chocolate/gumpaste figures. i have not been able to find a good way to make edible paint. I mix the gel colors with volka and for most cases it will be ok, but example yellow is almost transparent and i want it to look more of a primary color. So how does everyone else make "paint"?

I also have trouble sometimes geting colors to "stick" to the modeling choc. any advice on that?

I actually use a candy colors, I tinted the modeling chocolate like the fondant and is the best. Do you use dark or white modeling chocolate? I use white.

yes i color the modeling choc. with gel colors mixed in, but when sculpting, i like to paint on them. eyes, etc. not piece together little pieces of choc.

I just use Kirsch (or some clear liquor) and paste food color.
