I see people who have handpainted fondant all the time and I am wondering how you do this? Do you take food coloring and paint it directly or do you use something else? Please help... Thank you icon_biggrin.gif

I use food markers, but I also mix lustre and petal dusts with PGA (or lemon extract) and literally paint on the gumpaste or fiondant. The alcohol will evaporate leaving only the color behind. HTH!

Thank you cupadeecakes. I ended up taking my icing color and watering it down a little and it seemed to work.
