I have an upcoming quinceanera cake for Friday, the design is like one in the Cakecentral magazine but in aqua and silver. I have americolor silver sheen airbrush color and was wondering if it would come out silver once I aiirbrush on top of the aqua or if it would just get sparkly from the sheen? Would I need to order a metallic or what would you all suggest? Thanks for any help that comes my way!

Hi, i do use airbrush . I do think it will be silver using the silver sheen airbrush color. Can you make a small peice of the aqua and let it set up for a little bit.Then try your silver sheen airbrush color on it. That is what i do , when i need to know something like this. hth

I use silver sheen airbrush all the time on top of other colors. For me, it creates more of a sparkle than a true silver color. You may have to put quite a bit on for it to look silver....HTH

That's what I was afraid of.

silver sheen = light spakle sheen over existing color. It will not be pure silver color.

I mix silver luster dust with either vodka or lemon extract see my airplain picture ... was PERFECT silver.
