You can airbursh it with Silver paint.

yup airbrush is the way to go. If you dont have an airbrush, you can get a spraybottle, mix your luster dust and everclear and use the spraybottle instead, you usually have to use a pin to keep the nozzle clear but it will work.

You can color the BC a light gray color and then spray it with Duff's silver color spray. I found this @ Micheal's and it comes in a small spray can. I have used it on gray fondant and it gives a really nice silver color. Good Luck!!
