I'm practicing for my 1st wedding cake, which has quilting painted silver. I'm using Wilton Silver Pearl Dust, mixed with clear vanilla. I'm wondering how to get a smoother look, without the brush strokes. It's taking at least 3 coats to be a solid silver. Should it be a solid color, or is it generally more transparent?
The only way to avoid brush strokes on large areas is to airbrush if possible....
I should have mentioned I'm doing alternating squares on the quilt
it helps if you color the fondant a grey color first. But i've run into the streaky-ness also. I just posted a question on whether you could use the silver airbrush color...and paint it on (since i dont have an airbrush system). i hate how the luster dries quickly, and i seem to go thru alot of it. Plus, the wilton silver luster dust never gets bright bright silver--it's always a dull (like brushed nickle) look to it.
anyone ever use the airbrush color and paint it on?
