Using Font Awesome Unicode?

Hey all,

Quick question, is there any way to make a Font Awesome icon solid-colored, using just the unicode in the CSS? Is there an additional style I’m missing?

Right now, my icon looks like [the regular version]( rather than the solid version.

I’m working with some existing code, so I am hoping I don’t need to rewrite it all. Here is some of what I’m working with:

.wrapper label:before {
margin: 5px;
content: “\f005”;
font-family: FontAwesome;
display: inline-block;
font-size: 5.5em;
color: #a2c8e3;
font-weight: 900;

If there’s any other info I can provide to give more context, please let me know. Thank you in advance to anyone who helps!
