I knew Americolors were better but wow, I had no idea how MUCH better they were than Wilton!
I used my Americolors for the first time last night. My hand is stained. My counter has a nice little pink spot on it. And my tiara turned out fantastic! Which is what I was airbrushing.
I can't believe how little you need to use. And how BRIGHT the colors are. I am sold. Hook, line and sinker.
Never buying Wilton crap colors again!!
I'm glad you're happy with it! I've placed my order for some of them and wasn't sure how they were going to come out.. I'm now feeling more reassured!
Nothing like pressure.... LOL I hope you like them as much as I do!
I totally agree..Americolors are fabulous!!
Woot woot!! I adore Americolors. I am in love with the metallics too! They are awesome!
I like the fact that you don't need toothpicks! And Americolor Super Red is the best red.
But I DO like the thicker consistancy of the Wilton gels for light colors.
Do the colors leave a bad taste when you color the fondant dark? Wilton No-Taste Red is good but all the other Wilton colors I've tried leave a bad taste.
I don't know....I haven't tasted anything yet. I was airbrushing royal icing so I didn't eat it.
I totally agree, I had been using Wilton colors for years and finally decided to try some Americolors, I will never go back. The colors are so great and I also love the no toothpick thing.
Melvira - there's metallics?! oh man, so many choices and things to play with! i'm gonna need a shed to house all my new toys! lol
I love bold colors and have not noticed any bitter or off taste when making icing black, red or green. I use the Super Black and Super Red, favorites are the electric colors.
The black MMF (to be fair it was raspberry Jello MMF)on my cross stitch cake was made using Super black, just a healthy squirt into the melted mallows then worked in the PS. Add more black if the PS turns it too grey (just remember, these colors will definately deepen after a few hours/overnight). It was a charchoal grey when finished then the next day deep black.
I agree completely! Americolors are great! Wilton gel colors are awful...and they dry up so fast I rarely get them used up first. I just got the Amerimist airbrush colors too...can't wait to try them out, I'm sure they will be just as great!
