I hope someone can help me with some ideas on how to make leaves out of fondant. I have attached a picture of how I need them to look (i was sent this pic from customer)....they want them just like that are in the photo. Copper-like and shimmering. I have shimmer dust but not sure what color to use. Should I use gold? Also do I just use different colors of brown fondant?

I guess I have an idea of how they are made but just need some help from others who have made them before. Any Ideas?

They look to me to be cut out and brushed with the copper dust (mix with a tiny bit of vodka or clear liquor.

Any idea where to get copper dust? I can only find gold, silver, and white pearl.
