I add coco powder to get brown, then I add a little americolor black. So it ends up tasting like chocolate and you don't need too much black coloring.

Hmmm, I will have to try that. Do you only do that when you are covering a large area with the black RI, or do you use it for bordering and outlining in black also? Would the chocolate flavor interfere with the flavor you make your RI if you are only using the black to outline?

I only use chocolate when filling large space. For outlining and borders I just use black americolor gel..It really doesn't take too much and I don't think it has a bad taste.

Good Luck.
