I'm looking at making a beige teddy bear topper out of fondant/gumpaste. I have brown gel, and I'm wondering if I can somehow use that to paint the nose, eyes and mouth a dark brown??

Thanks for any advice. icon_smile.gif[/center]

Indeed you can! Just get a skinny paint brush, and mix the tiniest bit of water (or maybe some alcohol-content clear liquid, for speedier drying) with the tiniest bit of color gel. I've actually skipped the liquid part entirely and just dipped my brush into the gel, with no problems.

I agree with patti just get a little tiny bit of color and add a drop or two of vodka and use it as paint. I just saw aine2 do it for her ladybugs.
