I paint on fondant a lot, and recently I saw an Idea that uses white paint. I have no idea how to do this.

Last night I tried to just as silver pearl dust, but that only worked if I gobbed it on, I am still waiting for it to dry.

I have done a lot of painting on fondant as I said, and I am no artist. I mix my gel colors or a pearl dust with a little bit of 160 proof vodka. Which is the highest alcohol content I believe you can sell in the states.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. TFL

Oh the cupcakes I tried it on are posted in my photos.

I painted white on a black fondant cake before using the Kroma white airbrush color. It painted on a little thin, so I had to do 2 coats for some of the thicker areas.

Some states can't sell it, but I use PGA (Pure Grain Alcohol) to mix with my dusts. It's 190 proof, it's usually cheaper than vodka, and it evaporates SO fast!
