Hi! Does anyone knows how to mix color and vodka to paint over fondant? Thanks!!!
Hi, are you asking about gel colors and vodka or dusting colors and vodka. Are you going to paint fondant accents for the whole cake. That would help to know. thanks
Yes! That's exactly what I want. lusert dust and vodka or someone once said instead of vodka it can be use lemon extract.
I need to make gray color. But I only have silver luster dust and black, can I mix it?
Yes, use gel colors with vodka to paint fondant. I went to a craft store in the oils/acrylics section and bought a tray with had 8 small "pill" vials with caps that I use to mix my colors. Depending on how much you are covering, fill a vial with vodka and then take a paint brush and scoop a little color gel at a time, adding it to the vodka until you get the color you want. if you look up my cake photos you will see the bass fish and the baby which were both hand painted fondant. A suggestion is to not go over and over the same spot because it will start to melt the fondant and the paint will get sticky, paint a coat let it dry and then go back over.
thanks a lot!!!!!
Just a side note, I did this for the first time on my last birthday cake. I just used black gel and vodka to paint a skyline on blue fondant (there's pic on my profile, the superman looking cake). I didn't know that it would dry so shiny. It was fine, but just a heads up.
thanks for your advice!
I prefer lemon extract. Even though alcohol evaporates the idea of using alcohol on a cake when not requested really puts me off. Particularly if you know kids will be eating it ..
