I'm making an R2D2 cake for my son's birthday and his head is silver, what is the best way to make the fondant silver - I've used the metallic dust before but not sure they'll give a solid enough silver color...any of you CC's can point me in the right direction. thanks!
Tint the area you want to be silver a light gray then paint over it with the silver dust mixed with vodka.
thanks I'll give that a try!
lemon extract worke great too...leave less streaks..
The most effective way I have found is to airbrush it.. Americolor has a new silver sheen and gold sheen that is absolutely the best available to date... I used it for the beer bucket, and was extremely happy with it...
On the R2D2 cake I did awhile back I just painted the area with the nu-silver dust mixed with vodka. I did a couple of coats to get a silver I was happy with.
