Hello Fellow Cakers!
I need to attain a bright fuchsia on some gum paste orchids. I want the yellow to be bright as well. I've tried petal dust mixed with vodka and couldn't get it a uniform color kinda turned out blotchy. I then tried air brushing, nice and uniform but couldn't get a pretty, accurate color. I must be doing something wrong. Any ideas out there?? Thanks
Did you try dry dusting them?
Ya I tried dusting but couldn't get more than a pale fuchsia, the bride want them to match her flowers which are BRIGHT is that even possible?
you can buy fuschia gumpaste cos it is a very difficult colour to get exact. Or dust it in stages (steaming in between) and you might get close.
Thanks angelogoo I never thought of doing several coats. I'll try that.
