Using a steamer, painting with luster dust, airbrushing with luster dust... What particular type of shiny are you looking for?

Mix 50/50 corn syrup and vodka and paint it on. You might want to add a little extra vodka to improve drying time. At 50/50 mine was tacky for a couple of days.

if i want a small shiny object, lets say a cherry on top of a giant cupcake, i just dab it with glycerin or a little of piping gel (piping gel made it sticky but since i didn't touch it too much it was ok).

I spray a little Nonstick Pam spray in a cup and paint my small objects with a paint brush and it does the trick every time!

Tried all the methods and the 50/50 corn syrup and alcohol worked the best for me. Thanks "sillywabbitz" for the tip.
