Ok, I have painted on fondant and modeling chocolate before and used various things. I have used straight gel color, thinned gel color with various things, thin colored cookie icing, and even tried airbrush color but was too thin and beaded up.
What do the pros use? I want to do more painting but I just don't always like the results I get with what I use. Especially when I want white on another color but don't want it "raised" like it would be if I piped it on with RI.
Is there anyone out there who has some ideas?
Have you tried gel food or dry petal dust color thinned with a little alcohol? The stronger the better because the alcohol dries quickly leaving you just the color on the fondant. That's what I've used in the past, though I haven't done much painting, but i'm going to start and would love any other advise out there as well.
I use have used dusts with alcohol for painting, but I don't really get that solid color I am looking for.
