When there's too much vodka it's harder to get a good color. I just did a cake with silver bands on it yesterday and the silver went on really well when the paint was thicker.
My piece was small, but it dried completely--I didn't notice it being sticky. It was a small piece, though. I have no idea how doing a whole layer would work out.
