Looking to do something like this.  Just wondering what i would use for the writing? and how to get that white wash affect.  Maybe use white americolour airbrush liquid?

I'm pretty sure it was done using candy melts. Check out this video:

You can use the gel food color to paint the design on, or use candy melts. I used the candy melt method to do fondant chalkboard cupcake toppers. I wanted them to look like a chalk board that has been erased. I let the fondant set up a bit and then I used a paint brush to brush on some powdered sugar....that part came out perfect. The problem with the candy melts is that, well, they melt. I kept the whole bag in the freezer and pulled out a few at a time. Once you break it in half to "write" with it,  you have one point on each end to write with; I began to cut them into four pieces. It took 2 bags to complete 280 of the toppers. If I were doing a cake, I would probably paint on the details then once they have dried, go back with a brush and some sugar to get the white washed effect, but either method would work.  Good luck!
