What do you use to paint fondant or gumpaste?

Do you have a recipe or what do you use to make a paint, to paint on fondant or gumpaste?

From the editor:

To paint on gumpaste, fondant or buttercream, you can make a paint by thinning gel paste food color slightly with clear alcohol (vodka or similar).

Just about any effect you can achieve with regular paint, you can achieve with food color paint.

Have fun with this versatile technique!

Regards,

Michelle (editor)

I use vodka and food colouring. I have also been stuck out of town and used cocoa and vanilla (real vanilla) and this made a nice brown to add details to my make shift birch branches. You can also buy edible markers.
