Hi,
I just did this and used a mixture of 50/50 light corn syrup/lemon extract, just mixed together and painted on with a paint brush. They dried really shiny to the touch in less then an hour.

Some people use egg white brushed on the gum paste then it dries shiny

Hi, I agree with Cakepro. Confectioner's Glaze is the best. It is an edible varnish. I mix it with lustre dust and apply on my accents to get a nice sheen. Espacially the gold and the silver. If you are using that, you need to have glaze cleaner. Here are the links for you to see,

You can mix gum arabic with water. Stir and let ut sit for about 15 minutes and stir some more. It looks rather cloudy, but if you paint it on, it will dry to a clear shine.

Confectionary Arts International has a Lacquer Spray that doesnt need to be brush on. Both the confectionary glaze and the lacquer are really good giving shine.n DIfference is, one is sprayed the other one is brushed.

Yay!!! I'm glad it worked for you too........the nice thing about it is usually I always have those 2 ingredients at home (you can use vodka also). It really dries to a nice high gloss in no time. I love it icon_smile.gif
