Sorry for so many questions
Anyways....how do I get the shine as seen in the first photo? Is that brushed on after it dries (like with luster dust or something) or is something mixed into the icing to make it look like that?
Next question...How do I get a white outline and a color inside the outline? Does that make sense? Please see second pic
This is just my way of doing things... I'm sure there are better ways!
Brush embroidery is done with royal icing, so yes, when it dries brush it with Luster Dust diluted in Vodka or Lemon Extract. That will provide the sheen.
For a white outline and color inside you are actually using two lines. Outline with white then go back with the color you desire and outline inside the white. Actually pull the colored line out in the brush embroidery method.
Hope that helps. Some.
I agree with Win. My teacup cake posted under my pics is three (albeit very pale as requested) but still 3 colors of RI. I then went back and added a little luster dust and petal dusts.
Oh! Tinygoose! That teacup is precious! And, yes, exactly as I was trying to describe in writing.
Thanks so much Win!
Thank you both for your help! I agree, that teacup and saucer is amazing!!
