What can I use to give some plain white fondant figures some color? I haven't compleatly finished my poloar bears yet but I can tell they look too plain. I have/will be drawing lines in them to look like fur.
I saw a technique in Hello Cupcake, rubbing cocoa powder on it but I think it would be too dark.
Any suggestions?

I would use a little lustre dust on them, maybe snowflake colour??

do you have any petal dusts? I've used dove grey that I have added cornstarch to to lighten the color. You could also maybe try lightening the cocoa powder with cornstarch.
