You will need
- - food coloring (gel or dry);
- - gouache;
- - toothpicks;
- - the brush.
The easiest and safest way to paint a mastic - the use of food dyes. If you take a gel, you only need to drip a couple of times from the vial material. Then intensively knead the mass and get a homogenous lump of plastic dough from which it is possible to create. Just remember that to mix the dough with the paint very vigorously so that the sealant is hardened, and the color was distributed evenly.
If you use dry dyes can dye the fondant in two ways. The first looks like. Take a toothpick and dip it in the dye dry, then pierce it very a lot. Repeat this several times, and then start to mix the dough. Do this until the color is not evenly distributed. If you feel that the intensity of the color is not enough, add the dry powder, again with a toothpick.
The second method of staining mastic dry dye looks like. Put a little dye of a particular color in a small container. You only need a teaspoon of money. Squeeze it 2-3 drops of plain water or lemon juice (or diluted citric acid) and stir. Then place this mixture in mastic dough and mix.
If you are not going to eat mastic figurines can color the source material conventional gouache paints. You will also need 1-2 drops. Too much try not to pour, otherwise you risk to ruin the fondant - because of excessive moisture it simply breaks. As in the case of food dyes, mix paste and paint. Get creating.
You can paint the fondant after the fact. For this shape figure, connect the parts of it among themselves, allow to dry out - usually the mastic dries for about a day. Next, take markers or paint and a brush and start coloring. Again, remember that a strongly wet material is impossible, your toy can leak.
Pour the dry dye in the paste is not necessary. You will not be able to correctly mix, and the mass you get spotted and lumpy.
