Can we use those stamps and apply brush them with regular food coloring, the one's we use to color or paint on our fondant? Or does it have to be a special brand?

And here I thought I'd had a new idea icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

About the food safety; I have to confess it never crossed my mind, icon_redface.gif but it definitely has now. I just used ordinary rubber stamps, but will now see if I can get hold of the other kind, because this is something I will be doing again. I think my local hobby store has the clear kind on acrylic icon_confused.gif

Thanks for the ideas and links. thumbs_up.gif

It's actually better to apply the color with a brayer, which she also sells. A brush can apply it too thick, or get it on places that you don't want it. You can even stamp chocolates with her products. I did a demo on it a couple of years ago at the PA-ICES Cake Show in State College.

She also has a video available on the technique that Laure'l created.

I have tried stamping onto cookies but it is very difficult with letters especially. Not only do you have to make sure that every nook and cranny is brushed with color, but my problem is that when i went to stamp the cookies, they all broke! It was because the cookies werent completely flat. If there is any sort of bump, indentation, or the likes, it's difficult to get the stamp on clearly without pressing too hard that it'll break the cookie.
Anyway, i have not visited the sweet stampen site yet but i look forward to more insight in how this is done. Thanks for the link!

Ok, i'm confused. Are all the stamps on this site food safe? Because there is no one category that has all the food safe ones, just listed according to occasions.
Also, what are mounted and unmounted? which are better for our purposes?

I looked at the site & was disappointed that almost everything I would want (numbers, letters, & designs I could use to cover the background for a cookie) were all wood mounted & therefore not food safe

So are clear acrylic stamps ok to use? I would think so since I've seen some gumpaste rollers made out of acrylic

So maybe when it says 'mounted' it means the wood and unmounted would be the ones we're looking for to do on cookies? I wish there would be more of a distinction as to what can be used for food and what can't.
Even the stencil site has it's own sister site just for culinary purposes. Otherwise, it's confusing.

I use stamps all the time for my cookies and get rave reviews on them. What I do is lightly press the image into the fondant and then I paint that with thinned food gel colors. You can open up a whole new world with these stamps. It works beautifully on cakes also.

If the stamp in indented into the fondant, how do you avoid the 'paint' from pooling into the indentations?
post #30 of 31
You press the stamp just enough so you can see the design. It doesn't really matter if it does make a deeper mark as I thin my paints with melted cocoa butter and they do not have that pooling effect. If it does go down in the groove it only goes down on the side of the design and not up the outer edge. I don't know if that makes any sense, but it does work.
Another method is to use stiff stencils and press the stencil into the fondant. This raises the design and it's easy to paint that way also.
When you use the melted cocoa butter you get a shiny finish to your work.
Hope this helps.
