How can I achieve a gold color with airbrush. I have americolor metallic and shimmer set. I will airbrush gumpaste flowers?
and also. I will make my own ivory fondant, can I airbrush it with a pearl sheen americolor to get a shiny/metallic effect on cakes? Or, how can I mix this metallic and shimmer colors to get an ivory?
Please help..thank you
I don't own an airbrush so i don't know - just thought i would *bump* this up for you
The Americolor Gold Sheen and Pearl Sheen will be your best bets. They are very easy to use - just spray several light coats to get the coverage you want and be sure to shake the bottles well each time you add to the pigment cup. I love those Americolor sheens! I have colored gumpaste and fondant with great success. Pearl will, of course, be the luminescent ivory look of pearls rather than a metallic shine - very soft and lustrous.
Thank you ibmoser. I didnt get any response while I was decorating my cake so I had to experiment. And I did just what you said but I only sprayed 2 coatings . I also mixed gold and bronze, then gold and pearl sheen. I was happy with the result though they're lighter than what I really wanted.
I also wanted to get a gold fondant so mixed brown and yellow, i think it was a success.
