well, for writing you just write with it.......it can be colored with any gel food coloring quite easily. As for a transfer, you take a sheet of parchment paper and put it over a photo you'd like to transfer (coloring pages are usually the way to go) and pipe the gel over all the lines in the photo and then let it sit for about five minutes to firm up it won't get hard or anything but it won't be runny either, let flip the parchment over onto the cake, take a small paintbrush and gently brush it along all the lines of the photo you're transfering (on the back of the parchment) to help the gel adhere to the cake.......then slowly peel it off being careful not to smear the gel .......once it's off you should have a perrfect outline of your photo to follow....sometimes I do the outline in black gel if i'm going to go back and make all the outlines black anyhow but if you don't want the outline to show at all use the clear, it will still show up enough for you to follow but won't necessarily be obvious once the whole picture is colored in.
