I watched montreals version since she has started this , she uses an airbrush, but i do not own a air brush machine.

so i am confused at how to get my gel colors onto the pallet i painted the gel directly onto the cookie but it seemed thick and didn't dry so then i tried to water it down like suggested using lemon clear extract, it dried better but im trying to find alternatives because it didnt seem like they would dry in time to put in packaging.

any suggestions??

what about dabbing it on with a paper towel or something -- is there such a thing as a sanitary brand new sponge? probably not -- but I'd suggest that you continue with the alcohol +color somit has a chance to set up--

no I got it -- edible ink markers! americolor gourmet

i have the markers they are pretty cool :)

for the outline of the dinosaur i use Royal icing i have another post on here lol

 but the paint pallet i wonder if I need or/ can use regular gel colo?

if i do  use regular gel colors do i add alcohol or extract to make it think like airbrush?

 i saw people use these round sponge dabbers they are so cool but i dont know if normal gel colors is what i should be using 

 i pray these airbrush spray cans  from wilton work.)

you are so persevering -- I hope this works out wonderfully for you -- if you do the alcohol + paint it has to be mother henned a bit because the alcohol evaporates in short order and you have to diddle with it a bit as I'm sure you already know --

BEST to you!
