I made a sailboat out of gumpaste/fondant mix. It felt hard a dry enough, although not completely, but I went ahead and painted it with vodka and food color mix. Now it feels a little softer and the paint is tacky! I've had it in front of a fan all afternoon but it seems to be the same, not drying, I need it to be ready by Sunday night! Is there a faster way to dry it? Please, any help would be appreciated!

You could try putting it in the oven - heat off, with just the light and/or fan on.

If you're painting any more decorations try using rose spirits instead of's 95% alcohol and dries super fast. I find vodka takes forever to dry, and yes, makes things very tacky. Rose spirits will be dry in a few minutes.

Thank you Coral3 for your quick reply. I will put the boat in the oven right away. And I will google Rose spirits because I don't know what it is, lol! And I will definitely get some. Thanks again!
