I want to thank EVERYONE who has EVER suggested someone use Americolor! I needed some help on making some certain colors (specifically a dark red) and decided to make my own black too! A few drops of Americolor and I already had a dark dark gray! WOW! That color alone would've taken half the jar of wilton, at least! And did I mention how much cleaner they are to use?! Just flip the top! icon_smile.gif No mess on your hands, no mixing colors accidentally! I'm a super newbie, (can ya tell?) but I was like a kid in a candy store making my fondant! THANKS!!! icon_lol.gif

OK, now you've all just convinced me to give them a try. I have only used Wilton because that what the local craft stores sell, looks like I might have to do some online shopping.

I just used Americolor for the first time last week and I was amazed as well. I bought 3 bottles thinking I would need it all to get the bright hot pink I wanted, but I only used half of one bottle. I'm converted!

Really really wish I could use Americolor but I can't coz it's against EU regs!!! Urgh, as if we Brits need any more excuses to resent Brussels dictating to us!!

The greatest tip I ever got from this site (and I've gotten tons!) was to switch to Americolor! I want to marry the guy (or girl) that invented the stuff!!!
