So I read the post on the silver luster dust but had a few more questions...
I cut out some fondant stars and planned to turn them silver, but I do not have an airbrushing machine nor can I go buy one between now and Saturday
I tried this morning to mix the luster dust with almond extract but when I applied it to the stars it was hardly noticeable and it would probably take 5-6 coats to be noticeable!
Get the silver highlighter dust. Just use enough liquid (i use vodka) to get the brush wet, then dip it in the dust. Should give you a shiny silver finish. I've used it several times.
What is the silver highlighter dust? I just picked up the regular luster dust they sell at JoAnn's...
Are you making the lustre dust too runny? It needs to be thicker and another thing I do is add a few drops of flower glaze then the silver does not drop off. Hope this helps.
I use a small amt of veg or canola oil. It doesn't dry like alcohol but it does give a much more solid silver look. If you look in my photos the Optimus Prime Big Rig is cromed out with silver and oil
if you are using wilton's silver dust, it will not work. It turns greyish not silver... no matter what you do
The silver on that OP looks fabulous! Thanks for the tip, aimers.
Yes I have had the problem of the silver or gold turning a horrible colour when I added oil.
