Painter's Palette Cake

This is a painter's palette I did for the birthday of a grandmother I assume must be an artist. It was my first chance to try a wood grain effect on the fondant which was done by marbleizing brown and white fondant and then painting over with brown gel color. My brown paint was a little too dark and covered up most of the marbled fondant so next time I'll try to lighten that up a bit.

The paint globs are royal icing painted on top with piping gel and color. The paint brush is chocolate candy clay, yum! I'm trying to bring that out more because it seems to be yummier than fondant.
