I have lots of little shapes that I have made out of modelling paste and want them all gold coloured. Do you think it would work if i put them in a bag with gold lustre dust an gently shock them around?
I have spent hours painting other pieces gold and I've had enough
Any other sugestions would be warmly wlecomed.
I don't think you would get a uniform look if you do it that way. I think I'd just take a deep breath......and start painting! LOL

not the answer I was hoping for - its after midnight in Australia )
Actually, Calamity, you can get a uniform look that way. Just be careful not to put too many in at a time so you don't break them. It's a dry look, but very efficient way of working. Many people do pearls the exact same way. When you bring them out of the bag, if you can find a way to run a little steam over them (tea kettle) it will set the dust. Just be careful not to drip on the surface of your item --will leave a mark. The last step is not mandatory, just a little attention to detail.
Hi over there! I have also had enough of gumpaste and painting and making little things. I haven't even started on the big stuff yet! But if you get more done tonight you will sleep better because it won't be nagging at you in your dreams and less to do tomorrow.
sleep now cake tomorrow. thanks all. night!
Put 'em in a baggie, shake 'em around- I do that with my white chocolate pieces, just don't do too many at a time, otherwise they may break. I also do all my pearls and small fondant pieces that way............go to sleep now, sweet dreams.
