I was thinking about how when I need a chrome look, silver lustre dust painted on looks "shiny" but dull. If I painted something with silver/gold lustre dust, let it dry, and then coated it with a layer of piping gel would that give it a more polished look?

Has anyone tried this? I have a cake with classic cars on it coming up and I may have to test this idea out and see if it gives a true shiny polished chrome look.

For chrome mix nu-silver and pearl lustre dust and paint on. Looks just like chrome! icon_biggrin.gif

does anyone know what the silver paint is they use on Ace of Cakes? I see him use it for chrome but I don't know what it is

Luster dust paint can produce Chrome color, but I don't think it's the chrome that loolks like a mirror. But it will be Silver.

Duff airbrushes a lot of his cakes. Airbrush colors now come in metallic gold, silver, pearl and pink. If you don't have an airbrush, you can always "paint" the airbrush color on. I think I paid 12.00 per bottle for my paints - and they are shiny icon_biggrin.gif

that must be it. I saw them painting it on with a brush. It was the guitar cake that the silver paint was spilled on when they were brush painting, so they added a guitar strap to cover the spill.
