I have achieved the exact same color which I will be using for my next cake. I used gold airbrush color and mixed in a bit of gold and lots of pearl dusts. The amount of dusts will change the look. You can add alcohol if the mixture becomes to thick.
YOU ARE WONDERFUL RYLAN!!!!! I will give it a try! THANK YOU!!!!
No problem. The pearl dust is the key to make the gold lighter.
I have already tried the Gold pearl dust and I also have the bronze and neither gives me that color. What colors do I mix? Sorry I should have asked before getting all excited. LOL I thought there was a color of just pearl. New to this. Thanks
Super pearl is just like the color of pearls. Basically white with a sheen.
Here are the things I used:
Americolor gold airbrush color (liquid color, used for airbrush)
Gold luster dust
Super pearl luster dust
What I did is I added some pearl dusts on my airbrush color and then add a bit of gold and lots of super pearl dust. I think you can do this without the gold dust. I added a few drops of vodka to make it thinner.
The outcome looked like a lighter version of gold--which looks like the one in picture.
Btw, thanks for posting the picture because I've been trying to visualize how that color would go with white.
Just another option: You should test this on a plate to see if it is the right colour first but try mixing pearl dust with a bit of brown paste colouring and vodka and see how it turns out
Where would I purchase brown paste? Is that something that you can ingest? I am going to try both so that I can get this color right.
Thank you for looking at the pic and giving me some great advise on this issue. Its a beautiful cake and I want to do well because it is my first wedding cake. I just love this site! You all are great!
Sure the brown paste is edible! Not sure what colouring you use but they are like the liquid colouring but in a gel/paste form and more concentrated. I buy wilton brand but you can also buy americolor but here is what the wilton looks like anyway to get an idea:
Also i think that the gold mixed with pearl dust would also work and you could also add a touch of brown or even a tiny touch of black gel/paste colouring to the mix too, you will just have to play around.
and yes it is a very pretty cake
Ya know it almost looks like it is both gold with silver highlights. or is that just the way the light is hitting it? I would go for the color Rylan is suggesting. The brown icing color will darken it to a much to rich deep gold color.
Just wanted to let you all know that IT WORKED!!!!! Thanks for the tips and the brown paste gave me the color that I needed to make this work. You are great, thanks so very much! I lost 50 pounds of stress! I cant wait to put th scrolls on the cake!
glad that it worked out! and good luck with the cake!!!
what colour dusts did u use? the pearl, gold or both with the brown paste?
Mostly pearl with the brown then I added a little gold, not much until I got the color I needed to match the topper. I will post a pic when I get it together.
Oh wow that looks great!
Looks great Did you make the topper also?
turned out really nice!!
No I didn't do the topper the couple picked that out. Thank you so much!
