What do I use in my airbrush to get a glittery/sparkley effect?

Hmmm..nothing I have seen out yet will do that.The only thing is the new shimmer colors like pearl but that is not glittery.I think there might be an issue with clogging the nozzle with small glitter particles.

There are luster sprays they have gold and pearl that would add ashimmer effect.

On a cake I did recently I used twinkle dust (hologram silver) on my bow and lettering. It looked just like glitter. I don't think it would work in a airbrush because of the large grain. I just brushed it on. Here is the pic although it didn't photograph well

what did you use to make it adhere when you brushed it on?

After several attempts the method that worked best was to brush on luster dust mixed with alcohol then immediatly use a dry brush to apply the twinkle dust.
