Can I paint on SMBC? - Page 2

post #16 of 25

hi--sure you can paint on smbc--

 

fwiw i have air brushed on smbc successfully--i mean getting super deep dark colors was never my goal --like if you wanted a deep dark vibrant navy colored skyline using a different medium would be best i agree--but i've surely done all colors including black and grey and i sometimes use stencils too--it's very possible to do what you're suggesting on soft non-crusting coverings--

 

and i also agree that using the mediums you are comfortable with is a great way to go too

Really? Cause when I've oversprayed airbrush onto smbc, it was pretty ugly. I would really love to see successful water based painting of any kind over a heavy fat based icing, really, I'm intrigued.

sure--behind the shoe is a colorful tier cake that is air brushed smbc--in fact it's duff's recipe where it's uncooked egg whites because it was a dummy cake--so it's extra greasy--i typically will overpipe some detail--but there's that one--and that's one that i used a stencil of a rose--held it just away from the surface--so they were all the same--this is layered air brushing where i stacked up the colors--

 

and this was using air brush color sometimes watered down

 

 

i thought about you several times lately because my daughter's recent wedding cake was four different tier cakes--where one had a 9" top and one had a 7" cake on top -- no decor no topper--plain--but they were rough iced--god i love rough iced cakes! potential squatapotamous cakes--but they all looked good ;)

OK..here's the cake (after little fingers poked it) My daughter added the Peter Pan silhouettes. I wanted to do a fancy cake but she likes very simple things.

Thank you. It is the Sweetopolita Backberry, Vanilla, Marscapone cake. I'm not a blackberry fan at all but think it would have been wonderful with blueberries...

 

Oh I ended up just using white and yellow writing gel and a tiny paintbrush...

I like it!!  For future,  I would have suggested that you use piping gel. Blue comes out really dark with that stuff.

I airbrushed this cake, which was covered in buttercream.  The brown is fondants but the top and sides were airbrushed dark green. It beaded in a few spots but I just presumed that that was because I was a beginner in a hurry and didn't paint in multiple layers.   It did not want to dry, though.
