I need to replace my old colourings and wonder which is better, Wilton or Americolour?
Americolour for sure.
ok what are your reasons?
Dropper bottle... no need to use the toothpicks...
The red and black color better...
ok thanks ladies :-)!
I find with americolor younhave to use less color, it's stronger and less messy because of the dropper bottle. It is more expensive for sure though
I love the Americolor line. It's easier to use with the dropper, the colors are stronger, and the red doesn't taste bitter. I do have a couple of specific Wilton colors, only because I have not found a close enough shade in the Americolor line, but if I'm doing anything with red or black, definitely Americolor, and their electric colors are awesome.
Wilton is good in a pinch but if you're re supplying yourself, Americolor 100%. Colors seem to be more pigmented and true. Easy to use dropper.
I agree with the others. I only get Wilton in a pinch but love my americolor.
Funny enough the ones I need to chuck out is americolour, I have had them for years. Like you guys I have a couple of the wilton. Being in New Zealand they're quite expensive. Looking at getting them online in a full set.
I'm the opposite - I got a set of Americolor recently, and found that I have to use quite a bit more than with Wilton. Might be the specific colors I was trying to achieve (hot pink, burgandy, dark green.) Though I like the dropper bottles, since they're so much more expensive than Wilton, I tend to use Wilton most of the time.

Really? Those colors are hard to make with any colors. Are you really sure it took more, or is it that you use more than you thought you should?
It definitely took more - wasn't getting the shade I wanted, so ended up using some Wilton and it worked.
