That's how I discover Marshmallows...as my Blank Canvas Treat....I could make with them anything I wanted! and even paint them!
This is another Frequently asked Question about my StixNpops....How do you get colored marshmallows?
Well here you go!!!
- Food Coloring (I prefer the Wilton Brand)
- Paint brushes
- A small spoon
- Small cointainers/dishes
- Disposable gloves
- Parchment Paper
Put a small amount of water in your container, and take some food coloring with your spoon.
Add the food coloring to the water and mix. There is no exact amount of food coloring...it all depends on the shade of color you want.
In this case I am using an orange food coloring, If you're not sure if your color mix is ok...test it.
Take 2 marshmallows, 1 pink and 1 white. They both will end up with a different orange shade, because of their base color. With every StixNpops poject, I keep a test marshmallow, where I test my colors first.
I have tested here my orange food coloring on both marshmallows....and I like the color on the pink marshmallow...its a bit darker...and I want to make a pumpkin....so the color its perfect.
Once I have decided which marshmallows I am going to use. I start painting my marshmallow. As you may notice, I am using small amounts of the water-color....not dripping...because it will turned a really big mess...and will take forever to dry.
I usually have all the marshmallows I am going to color lined up on the parchment paper. I paint the top and the sides...and let it dry for 30 min- 1 hour
after it dries, turn it over to paint the bottom.
and there you have it....a colored Marshmallow!!!
I Painted both the white and the pink marshmallow, so you an see the difference.
It depends on the colors you are looking for...before you start painting all your marshmallows...test the color on both marshmallow colors.
