Looking for opinions on what brand of air brush colors to buy. Just purchased badger air brush set..... AND I am looking for a shimmer color that doesn't "yellow" the cake. I was using pearl from the can and it makes the cakes turn ivory. Thoughts?

Americolor Pearl Sheen and Lucks are good..I have never had the yellowing problem...Even from the PME canned pearl spray....Interesting....

It doesn't really "yellow" it just makes my super white fondant cakes more pearlish, as it should, since it's pearl spray. I am looking for something that just makes it shiny and not pearl I guess.

Ahh..Then what you are looking for is Edible clear food lacquer..You can buy it at most restaraunt supply shops.It is expensive though at about $35.00 a can.Americolor and others that make the gel pastes etc don't make the food lacquer.

I saw on one of Duffs videos that he spray this cake at the end with vodka to make it shine.

I guess I am not making myself very clear. I want a shimmer, but I don't want it to be pearlized like "pearls" which are more ivory. I want pure white shimmer not shine. It could just be the brand of spray I was using????

white Luster dust or maybe disco or sparkle dust might be what you're wanting?
