I'm attempting my first purse cake this weekend and was wondering if anyone had any tips on tinting my white fondant the right color of brown for a LV purse?
Also, I am going to paint on the logos with gold dust, how much vodka should I mix in and what should the consistency be?
Thanks for all your help!!!!!!!
I made one a few months ago..The color was a dark burgundy brown.I tinted the fondant a pale brick red and then added in a touch of brown and of course I airbrished it too.I made the LV logo from Gumpaste and cut it out with a template and exact knife.Then I glued it on while it was still plyable and painted it after.It was the first one I ever did too and it turned out pretty good!!Pour in the dust first and add a drop or so of vodka.The mixture should be like thick syrup..not clumpy.
Thanks so much KiddieKakes, that was helpful.
Just to update for people who have the same question as me, I used about half a bottle of wilton brown and some black and burgundy to get the louis vuitton classic brown purse color. I added a bunch of brown, then a little black, then a little burgundy and then repeated.
I haven't done the lustre dust yet.
