Split cake help!

Post by Daizy on Fri Sep 10, 2010 12:57 am

Ok so I have been reading up on here the last few days about split cakes/rainbow cakes (is there actually a difference..??)
Anyway, I thought they were awesome and really wanted to try and make one myself.

I managed to make it ok using my snazaroo paints, red pink and white. The only problem I am having is after the first brush load it is all turning into the same pink colour.... what am I doing wrong, how do I fix it?

I would love to be able to start using split cakes in face painting. Maybe I should try buying a pre made one first...??

Good point with the water, thankyou!
Also looking at it my middle colour(pink) is prbably too wide..
It didn't seem as bad doing it the second time around for pics Razz

yes, pink is really too wide... I think for this cake the 3 colors need to be the same amount for each one... Smile Try try again Smile

With Snaz you probably don't even need the pink. Just split a white & red. Pink will just happen. The little round pots are hard to work w/ your flat brush. It's doable, but not as easy. I find Snaz doesn't make the best splits, but it's good for starters. I like wolfe or dfx best.

Sometimes if my splits get a bit muddied or mixed I wipe over them once with a wipe to clean it. Don't know if that helps.

Snaz isn't great for split cakes, it blends too easily into each other. Just about every company is making spit cakes now, they are easy to get a hold of now:)I have the Arty cakes and some of the DFX ones. I haven't tried the Paradise ones, but I am sure they work well.

I have just ordered a Tag split cake (the only one I could find around here)
I have just split a whole bunch of my old snaz palettes just for fun, I have been experimenting and snaz definitely has colours that work better for splitting.

Your snaz split will work okay for sponging to make a nice blend... like butterfly or something. For the one-stroke brushing, it's not as useful.
