spray can color????

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Ok i think this stuff is called color mist. i have only tried it once and was very very very disappointed. I bought the black... didnt want to try to color with the wilton icing color. Now maybe i did something wrong but the color in the can wasnt even black. There really wasnt any color at all just a bad smelling liquid came out. I wouldnt even call it gray Did i get a bad can or is black a bad color to use this product for??? has anyone had any luck with this product and if so can you give me some pointers.

I have used it before and never had the problem that you describe. Maybe it was expired??? Did you spray it on thick enough? The only problem I have had with it is it taste kind of pepperminty, which really didn't go too well with the sugar cookies I was putting it on. I used it on a cake and it was fine.

Don't give up on it, maybe try to get a different brand...I used Wilton's brand.

I have used the red,green,blue and yellow..They're ok if you don't have the equipment for airbrushing.

trust me i couldnt have prayed it any thicker in one spot. The icing started to break down from being so wet. WE tested it on paper, fondant and icing same results on all. Not matter how much we shook it. Maybe it was just a bad can.

I've used the Wilton green in the past and I was really upset about that minty taste icon_razz.gif . The can didn't even warn you. Have they changed that yet? I've also used the black and had the same problem susanmm23 did--watery! The orange did the same thing. The blue worked well though. I've since gotten an airbrush which costs about as much as 50 cans of spray but mine never runs out or tastes like a candy cane thumbs_up.gif .

I've use the black color mist on the what was suppose to be my Skateboard I made. It came out just fine..I even used the red spray for the spiderman I made. I was actually thanking my god for it.. LOL because the red I tried to make was a deep pink..

You did nothing wrong! It is the product that was used! Wilton spray can colors are the worst! AmeriColor is FAR SUPERIOR. It is a smaller can and has 3X the amount in it. It is like Wilton in the fact that just when you think you have shaken it enough you'd better shake it some more. Wilton is the only one that I've encountered that "splattered" out of the can instead of a super fine aerosol that should emminate out of the container. I'm not saying the AmeriColor is perfect but I have had a lot fewer problems with it. I only use the Wilton spray cans if I'm desperate. Yes, the spray cans are cheaper than an airbrush, although that is now on my wish list for the holidays, I figure after buying enough of the spray colors I very well afford an airbrush and be done with the canned stuff.

P.S. After you use the canned colors and there is still some left in the can, turn the can upside down and spray it to clear the nozzel out. Then rinse off the nozzel. This will keep it from clogging up and save you problems the next time you want to use the can.

Im glad i did nothing wrong. After the first spray test and it came out like water i thought i must need to shake it more. So like 30 minutes later and with the help of a friend we continuously shook it. Still the same result as the first spray. So we thought maybe we need to get it going first. We sprayed on paper, then tried the icing again. Wrong again!!!!! I dont think i will ever use this stuff again. I would much rather spend the time using the icing colors. I too have the airbrush on my holiday list.

I use it all the time icon_razz.gif never had a problem ever! icon_razz.gif I just shoke it alot, and kept moving my hands from side to side. stop let it dry and did it again. I never used black though... I have and used spring colors, yellow pink and purple. Still have some and want to use it a little on the easter egg cakes for this week. But I am going to try americolor products once back in the states! thumbs_up.gif

Im not sure what brand it was. Its not sold by the wilton stuff in the store so maybe its not the wilton brand. I will have to check when i go to the store again. I threw the other can in the trash.

Yes Betty sells them in the grocery store. I haven't tried them either. I think I will take the advice of others and try the americolor if needed.
