I am very new here but I do have one question. Every time I decorate I'll have color on my hands for at least 2-3 days before coming off 5 showers later. :)
Is there anything else I can use to prevent coloring my fingers and hands along with my fondant?
Hi KalizCakes! I have seen people who wear gloves just until the color gets initially mixed in and then they take the gloves off and mix it the rest of the way.
I've been at this long enough that air brushing is usually the only activity that leaves me colorful -- but this would work for any activity --
get some polident tablets -- are you in the states--
these are denture cleaning tablets -- you drop one in a cup of water and put in your dentures to clean them --
well dip your fingers in instead before getting plastered with color and you'll still get color on your hands but it washes offeasy peasy and you can keep dunking as you go too --
best to you
hey for kneading color into fondant -- I put it all in a baggie -- well a small amount of fondant and the whole amount of color -- and just manipulate it around in there till it's all sucked up then add it to the bigger blob and finish kneading by hand -- it works great --
Thank you, I was worried the gloves would make it taste funny. I will definitely try it out.
@K8memphis That is an awesome idea, Thank you so much! :)
Both of your responses!
I always spray my hands with spray oil before mixing colours in, the colour that does stay on my hands washes off easily.
I always coat at least my fingers in Crisco. It helps with the cuticles.
