Well, made my first color flow "Dora" and she turned out just fine EXCEPT I tried to smooth out a little by her mouth using a paint brush with water. I thought the brush was "damp" and not wet, but WRONG. Now, she has an indent next to her mouth. Of course, I didn't save the color since so little was left. I can attempt to recreate her face color, but if I put it on top of what is there, will it then be a total disaster? Any suggestions that might help me? Thanks in advance (I hope). Cassie

Form a tiny heart out of fondant and stick it on the blemish. Just roll a little ball, squeeze the bottom and make a little indent on the top.

If the face is still wet, you can add just a touch of colorflow to fill in. use your paint brush to smooth out.

I like the idea of the little heart.

I know it is too late but for next time, I ALWAYS make 2 it is a little extra work but not much since all the colors are mixed and it is has come in handy many times if I don't end up using the spare you can save it for a future cake.

Thanks for the responses. Guess going with the little heart will be what I need to do. It isn't wet, it's been drying for a few days. And, next time, I will make two. That would have made sense since, especially with Dora, I had to mix the colorflow for so many different colors.
