Best food coloring? - Page 2

post #16 of 19

you could i guess

 

especially if you want a contrasting color in there from the stem up partway

 

but i think it's more efficient to do it at the end

 

after it's dried & assembled i usually just slide the brush down in there between the petals a bit

 

you don't want it too dusty either to interfere with any gluing to be done either

 

the wet (from glue) dust might make a noticeable color difference

 

there are others much more qualified than me but that's how i do it

If it's a fully wired flower, yes, I dust each petal before assembly.  If it's glued together flower, I dust it when it's finished.  The dust gets everywhere, so it's not really an issue :0)  I then lightly steam the flower to set the color.

I have had luck mixing red fondont with my gumpaste and adding color from there. It takes a bit longer to dry hard but the color has been nice. I used this method to make this Pokemon Ball. It took a couple of days to dry but came out nice  and red.

For liquid food coloring I use americolor all the way.
