Depends on what you are trying to paint. I've painted on molds and then put them on the cake but the color will come off onto your fingers and may look smudged. I don't know how long it would have to sit before it was really dry. I've painted things that dried for days but still left color on my fingers. I like my fondant or gumpaste to be dry befor ei paint on it. I've painted on fresh before though. It all depends on what your are trying to make.
