You use basic consistency of RI, and then I suggest adding a tiny amount of piping gel to your icing, to make it more pliable. That should help.

You can also try to use your basic RI recipe and each time you use your paint brush dip it in a TINY bit of water.. before you use it to stroke..

I use fresh egg weight and powdered sugar, ratio 1:5 weight.

Say 20 g egg white, 100 g powdered sugar. Mix with the paddle attachment of your mixer on SLOW for 5-8 minutes (it depends on the speed of your mixer.

You should have soft peak consistency that is ready to use. For brush embroidery I usually thin it down again in a small bowl – one spatula full of icing, 1-2 drops water. It depends on what you are comfortable piping with.
