I am trying to paint a moulded fondant such as a mould of Santa Claus. When I tried painting the hat red with the Wilton coloring (the coloring I use to mix into fondant to color it) it was too thick. I tried dipping my brush into some water and it did work for thinning it to paint but it took weeks to dry. Is there a trick to this or am I using the wrong type of paint.

I am no pro for sure but i thing you did all of it correct except most of the time people us vodka or lemon juice, I think this helps with the drying. I am pretty sure this is correct but if not forgive me. By the way do you know how to make great edible fondant? I have never eaten 1/2 way great tasing fondant. I need to decorate wedding cookies?

What is used for painting on cakes is mixing the color with some high proof alcohol to thin it or you can use good quality lemon extract.
