I have been trying to figure out how i get the color silver, cvan anyone help!
I use a sliver glaze or luster dust on fondant or gum paste.....not sure about butter cream. Hope this helps.
buttercream: tint icing gray, then follow up by airbrushing with silver airbrush color.
fondant: same thing really, though likely you can just airbrush. I use Lucks silver Shimmer airbrush color.
you could use luster dust, but messy and timeconsuming to cover large areas this way, and not nearly as smooth a finish.
I use Americacolor silver airbrush color for large areas of BC and fondant. Silver luster dust mixed with everclear or vodka and a paint brush for smaller areas.
