PME makes spray color. I have the pearl and gold and can't remember if there's a silver or not. Is your cake going to be fondnat? If so you can paint it with Nusilver + clear alcohol (vanilla for example.)

I agree that nu silver works well and I brush color on my fondant all of the time. Make sure the vanilla is clear and has alcohol in it.

nu silver is (I think) the only way to get a shinney silver BUT>>>>>>>>>>>
it is NOT considered edible.. As far as I know nothing is (in the US).
Yes, it is non toxic but the health dept does not consider it edible. Anything w/silver or gold on it is suppose to be removed - not served.
About the only thing you can do is use a grey then paint on CornSyrup or thinned piping gel.
I don't know about PME that leahs mentioned.
