Gray fondant then airbrushed? I don't think you're going to get an actual silver unless it is just a finish. I have a pic of a stethoscope and it is white fondant covered with silver highlighter powder.

Yeah, you'll have to paint the fondant, either with silver edible paint, or air brush it.

the americolor airbrush silver sheen is great if you have an airbrush. I used it on the snare drum cake in my gallery, it looks silver. The gold is great too, I did an entire 50th anniversary cake (also in my gallery) sprayed with it.

Having just looked at the airbrush silver sheen at GSA I think I like it and that's th way to go. You are all my heroes! Thank You Now what about black fondant? Am I correct in remembering from this forum to start with chocolate and mix in black? Who has the best choc fondant?

The darker gray you start with the darker your silver will be. If you just airbrush white fondant it will be kinda light. You could also airbrush white with diluted black to make it gray before going over it with the silver for the same effect.

Definitely start with chocolate fondant if you want black. I think you'll never get a true black if you start with white fondant. I have taken Wilton's fondant and added cocoa powder to get chocolate, then added black. I know Wilton's is yuck, but it's easy to work with and accessible.

From what I hear, Chocopan is a huge favorite for chocolate fondant. Good taste and good to work with.
