to all of you experienced decorators, I need some advice. what do you use on black fondant to give it a sheen? If you paint luster dust on it, what color do you use, because I have never seen black. Is there something the goes on clear and gives it a luster? Thanks in advance for all the help!

You can rub it with a paper towel soaked with vodka...or you can drink the vodka to shine yourself up, and use peppermint or lemon extract to shine the fondant up
I've also rubbed some Crisco on my hands and rubbed it over the fondant.

you can also buy confectioners glaze, or use steam.

Those are great ideas! I was curious about this too because I wanted to make a bowling ball cake for my husband. I need something pretty shiney though so maybe I will look into that edible varnish? Sounds shiney to me.
