Best brush for painting fondant

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello - Can someone please give me suggestions on the best type of brush for painting fondant. By that I mean I am looking for a brush that does not give a streaky look. I know I need a really soft brush but do not know anything about brush fiber types, etc. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I find that the best brushes for painting on fondant are the best brushes period. I buy camel-hair brushes at an artist's supply shop. I also buy other kinds, but I look for the finest and softest bristles so that streaking won't be a problem (unless I'm looking for a little texture). The other problem I have is with my colors. I prefer to dissolve them in vodka so they'll dry quickly, but some of them clump when I do this and this also causes streaks. Most of them dissolve in water, but water kind of weakens the fondant. A few of them refuse to do even that, which I think means I've had them too long, so I try to replace them when that starts happening! Hope some of this helps!
