- It can also be mixed into Quick Paint, Paint Base or pure lemon extract and used as a paint to paint onto fondant, decorations, pastilage, gelatine balls etc.
- Used to dry brush colour onto gum paste or fondant designs. The result will be a PEARL like finish.
- In a small bowl, mix equal parts WHITE LABEL PIGMENT and Quick Paint, Paint Base (for painting on chocolate or fondant) or pure lemon extract. Mix thoroughly before painting and stir often as it continuously settles to the bottom. If you need to paint more than one layer for even coverage allow each coat to dry completely before starting a new one.
- Dab the paint brush into the pigment and tip excess off. Test the colour by brushing in a circular motion on paper towel. If it is correct, do the same on the fondant or gum paste designs you want to add colour to. Ideal for sugar craft flowers etc. For fine details, a small round head brush works best. For larger areas, use a wider, flatter brush even the big round brush, used to apply blusher.
– It is advised that these powders must not be dusted onto an acidic surface as it will denature some of the colours. I.E. Purple will become a dull blue over time, Brown and Black will become greenish.
– Some colours such as the Reds, Purples, Black and often Brown develops to a darker shade over time. Give these colours at least two hours to develop after it was mixed into products such as fondant, butter/royal icing etc. before use. Reds become redder, purples deeper
