I've added globs of americolor super black to my royal and am still at charcoal gray. How do you do it?
you actually have to let it sit for a few mins...a lot of times mine still looks gray and it turns black soon after.
It's a bit like painting. If your doing black start with a dark under coat. Yesterday I was colouring fondant so I started with purple, worked it through and then went black. You could use green but I think purple makes a better black.
how much are you trying to color? I typically only color 1-2 cups max and it takes less than a T (not sure exact amount) to color that much. like a pp said, make sure to give it time to set too.
Thanks, guys! Time did the trick. It came out black as night after I waited about half an hour. You guys are the best!
