Have seen this before but for some reason, my search is not working. I am trying to make silver paint for tools. I tried the vodka, but wound up with paste, thined with more vodka, still not right. The pics i see on here are bright shiny silver. I must have these fondant tools done by Friday and must say I am getting a little nervous. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks icon_redface.gif

um i dunno if this is going to help but yeh there is the silver dust that you could prob just dust straight on without the vodka or you can actually buy edible silver paint! i don't know if you can buy this near you but it might help.

I don't know if you are going to eat the tools or not but it's not good to eat something that is covered in it, but it is technically edible in like small amounts like details and it is non-toxic but you would have to check with the specific brand at your cake decorating center. HTH icon_smile.gif

Just if your interested a found a website where you can have a look at the product:

I did use silver "paint" I mixed silver luster dust and clear butter flavoring. It worked well until the fondant started to sweat. See my picture its not great but like I said it worked well until the fondant got mushy! OOPS! I learned 2 things... 1. Not to cover a cake until its room temp...2. Paint it even later.

The paint did go on well I made it between a paste and thin and I used the whole little container of luster dust for this cupcake liner.

Let's learn from each other!

Lucks and Americolor both hve spray colors that i believe you can just paint directly onto an object as well.
