I have some issues when I use the regular inks to hand paint my cookies, they don't work well, what should I use? What should I use to lighten the dark color? It is just different than the kind of ink I use for stamping my cookies? Help me please. I am kind of new here and I don't know what to do, I ruined 4 cookies already.
I usually handpaint my cookies with powder colors (my favorite brands are: Rainbow Dust, Sugarflair and Fratello) mixed whith some drops of vodka. They work better than paste or gel ones since they dry faster.
Anyway, when I want to lighten a dark color (powder, gel or paste) I mix it with a little amount of white powder (I always use Sugarflair Extra White)
