Does all gum-paste fade or is it just wilton's? How do you keep it from fading?
Thanks in advance.
Hi, you have to keep it well wrapped and don't put it on direct sunlight.
I meant after the flower is made. But I will definitely try the no sunlight trick!
I agree, keep it out of the light. Light is not your friend when it comes to gum paste.
Enjoy your day!
I have used the pigmented powders on the flower and held it over steam for a few seconds and it has sealed in the color. I have also tried it with the pearl dusts and it adds a little shine as well. Good luck!
Do any of the flowers have red in them? Are they red, pink, orange or purple? Did the orange turn yellow and did the purple turn blue?
if so, you are just dealing with the aftershocks of Red Dye #2 being removed from the market back in (approx) 1976 because it might maybe sorta kinda cause cancer. There was no other red dye as stable or long lasting so we've been dealing with it for 30 years.
