I want to take a painting class at a local art school to further my painting skills. Does anyone know what type of paint properties GEL FOOD COLORS most resemble?
Acrylics, Watercolors, Oil, other?
I think they most closely resemble watercolors, but they are not exactly like them. I think any painting class will improve your cake painting skills and I hope you enjoy the class!
The gel food colours can be diluted with different media--vodka, piping gel, corn syrup.
That gives then significantly different qualities. Vodka--most like watercolour. Piping gel--most like acrylic.
