i think you will need silver lustre dust for the bear as well, its definatly not plain grey. that paste looks fine, although you might not want it quite that dark, but you would just add white.
you may want to think about adding something to it or mixing it with gumpaste to make it a bit stronger.
aine2 has a tutorial for making a bear if that will help you too.

Thankyou i will add some white to it.

Which silver lustre should i go for satin silver or antique silver?

You can make grey paste by adding black paste food colour to white fondant - a small amount at a time until you get the shade you need. Also, add CMC (tylose) powder to the sugar paste makes it into modelling paste, more suitable for making figures

good luck

satin silver sounds more silver to me.
