Basically the subject says it all! I have to make 2 Tiffany blue bird toppers for a wedding cake on Weds. and am so nervous they will fade when I let harden. Seems like no matter what color I use it fades, even just overnight. Any suggestions?
Gumpaste does seem to dry in a softer color than it is when it is fresh. You can either make your color a little darker or dry dust some color on top of it after ward to help.
Also keeping pieces out of florescent or sunlight helps with fading.
Let them dry in a dark or enclosed cabinet away from direct sunlight and fluorescent lighting.
Thanks for your help, I was going to try making it a tad darker but was worried that the ONLY time it wouldn't fade was when I made it darker...would be my luck! haha!
