I have tried to make silver paint using luster dust and vodka. All I got was a dull gray mess. I used Wilton luster dust, so I thought the quality would be okay. What did I do wrong?????? icon_cry.gif

The very best silver colors I've gotten is when I've used the nu-silver color of lustre dust mixed with vodka. You can order it online. Global sugar art carries it if I'm not mistaken as well as tons of other on-line cake suppliers if you don't have a cake decorating store near you. My experience with Wilton luster dusts has not been favorable at all! This is a cake that I used nu-silver on.

Not to steal your thread here but . . . I was just wondering this last night - how to make edible paint. So it's just luster dust and vodka?

The wilton stuff is not going to work. I agree with Mencked, I made a cake with snowflakes and tried the wilton silver and it was palin ugly gray. try the global suagr art or anything you can find in a cake supply store

Thanks to "Mencked".
I've ordered the nu-silver from Global Sugar.
