Using TruColor™ Natural Gel Paste Powder
To make a gel paste from your powder you will have to dissolve it completely, a good starting point is a 1:1 ratio, one part water to one part powder such as 1 teaspoon water to one teaspoon powder.
Example: (1/4 teaspoon water to 1/4 teaspoon powder) less water for thicker color

TruColor™ “Black” Gel paste Powder is made with a fruit juice anthocyanin and requires a neutral to basic pH to get a “Tru” black shade. A small 5 gram jar will color ¼ pound of buttercream icing made with real butter and cream or water to a deep black shade and up to ½ pound of icing a grey color that will darken to show a black shade overnight. If your fondant has Acetic Acid or the shortening in your buttercream icing is stabilized with Citric Acid you will need to bring up the pH by adding small pinches of dissolved Baking soda to neutralize the acid that is already in your icing. Buttercream Icing made with real butter is naturally pH neutral, simply add the dissolved TruColor™ Black into real butter cream made from butter and cream (milk or water) to achieve a dark black shade as these ingredients are naturally neutral! A simply way to get a deep black shade is to simply paint with a paint brush or airbrush TruColor™ Black Natural Food Color Paint on the surface of your creation after the icing has had time to dry. Using this method of only applying color on the surface you take advantage of using natural colors to attain the deepest shade possible using the least amount of color.
