I have been trying to get the shiny gold and silver looking paint I see people use on some of the decorating challenges I watch on tv and so far everything I have tried hasn't looked the same. I have bought shimmer dust, pearl dust and mixed it with vodka and painted it on, and also a gold glaze and nothing looks like what they are using. Help! I haven't had the opportunity to take classes I am pretty much self taught so I haven't learned all the tricks yet. Anyone have any suggestions?

This is what I use to paint things gold and silver. Works much better than dusts and vodka if you ask me.

Heh, I just posted something similar. Does this give a super shiny real look? I was thinking of doing my normal color and then painting a layer of piping gel over it to give it a truly shiny color but wasn't sure if it would work. I'm definitely going to try it though.
