Can anyone tell me what the fondant beads are painted with, what color it is, and are the dragees painted with the same thing? I have never used dragees before so I have no idea how to use them...TIA
Looks like a Copper coloring to me. I would say it could be Pearlized Luster dust painted on both.
Looks like it could be copper or old gold and then luster dust.
I agree, copper luster dust, my cake supply store sells it or you can find it online. I've never seen copper dragees, but again an online search may yeild them-otherwise I'd say they would also need to be painted with the luster dust. I usually make a paste of luster with vodka until its a paintable consistancy and paint each detail...but with beads and dragees I wonder if you could just put them in a container and sprinkle the dust on, roll them around in it(kinda like powdering a ddonut) I'm sure someone can answer. Dragees can be attached to the cake with piping gel or royal icing.
I just bought some americolor airbrush color in silver and gold that I was told you could paint with,I am pretty sure they have it in copper or bronze, that might be a good way of painting the fondant balls.
