i have some metallic food paint that I want to paint my transfer with before I place it in the wet royal icing on my cookie. Has anyone tried this? I am curious if the metallic paint will bleed into the wet foundation. I thought it might be easier than painting so many after they are on the cookie and trying to stay in the lines.

When dried, most gold luster paint can be powdery and easily separate from the surface of whatever it's on. So, while I haven't done what you're suggesting, I think some may come off and get in the icing, especially if your icing is thin. The thicker, the better. But I don't think it will bleed like food coloring and take over (seep well into) your icing; you may just have some gold dust get into the nearby icing. Please report back, and let us know how it goes.
Anyone else?? Would love to hear what others have to say on this topic!
