So, I had trouble again coloring my MMF red. The consistency change & it lost its elasticity. I colored my MMF with red color & let it rest overnight so it could darken but I still had to add more red. I tried adding more PS since it seems a little too sticky & then it just lost all elasticity. Any suggestions as to what I can add to bring back the elasticity in MMF? TIA
For deep colors I'd really suggest that you buy the commercial pre-colored stuff.
I just hate the tast of the store bought fondant, but I might have to reconsider with all trouble lately. My white fondant is the perfect consistency, but once I started adding a bunch of a dark color it turns into a mess.
Have you considered investing on an airbrush machine? I dont use it often but it does save you quite a bit of time when trying to achieve those dark colors. im sure you can find a kit for under 100 dollars. Very well worth the investment.
Have you tried powdered colors. I use for red, black and brown. Works great.
here is the site that helped me with coloring fondant.
Yes, an airbrush machine is next on my wish list.
I will for sure order some powdered colors in the mean time until I am able to purchase an airbrush machine. Thank you very much for your help!
