I work with fondant quite a bit and I've decided I want to try painting. I've watched a few tutorials and read up on it, but there are a few things I'm unsure about. I'm just going to dot point them and if you know anything about any questions, please say :) I don't have any vodka to mix in with the gel paste. Will peppermint essence work as it only has peppermint oil, alcohol and a little bit of water? How much do I need on the brush? I don't want to overload...
