What is this style of painting/drawing called?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I love the effect of the painting/drawing as on this cake: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2059455/hand-painted-black-and-white-wedding-cake. Does anyone know what it is called? I would like to read up on it but haven't been able to find anything. I found lots of examples, but no instructions or demos.

Thanks in advance for the help!

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

This is a British instructional video, but it covers the method. For "rejuvenating spirits" we in the US would use lemon extract or vodka (because they dry very quickly and don't melt into the fondant) with powdered color or colored gel.

Thanks for the replies icon_smile.gif Flourishes are what I kept running across, and tattoo drawings. Guess I will start downloading flourishes and print some out to practice with thumbs_up.gif
