Hi all!!!

Ok, so here's my problem, I know somebody has the solution!! lol..
I piped a scrollwork design on a cake with RI which I then (after it had dried) painted it silver with a lusterdust/vodka mixture. I love the colour this gets you but it seems that the alcohol "eats" into the RI and kind of creates craters... anyone know how to avoid this?

When I paint RI, I use luster dust without the vodka. Can you do this and still achieve the color you want?

I use clear vanilla.
Never had an issue with the craters...
