sweetcakes, you paint the cheetah print and then spray it? How is it the spray doesnt color the cheetach print then, it looks so good....very very well done!!!

when i did a camo print on one of my cakes I just used the viva method...frosting my cake, pipped on the color i wanted, then smoothed/pressed the piping with a viva paper towel...it was so easy! icon_smile.gif

I did one in late May...you can see it on my pics..I used a stencil for the black on pink and then I used an Airbrush to fill in the shaded pink to give the illusion of the cheetah print.

Hope this helps

i do the black and brown part of the cheetah print in buttercream, smooth it with a paper towel and then airbrush ivory on top in various concentrations so there are lighter areas and darker areas.
