When I try to get a metallic look, I use a fondant that is as close as possible (dk grey) then dry brush on the silver lustre dust. You can buy it at Michaels. Purchase a fairly big bristle brush (I use a blush brush) but if you want more detail, you can use a smaller one) Now this looks shinier, so perhaps they also steamed it or sprayed it with crisco after (or perhaps used something in an airbrush). But try it with the fondant and lustre dust and see if you like the look first. Have fun!

There is also metallic silver edible spray that comes in a can at Michaels, I think duff makes it. It's like 4.95 a can. I use it all the time for the face masks on football helmets

It looks like they used the moonstone luster, which is darker than regular silver.

It looks to me like the entire microphone is made of black fondant or gumpaste and then airbrushed with silver on top. The black fondant gives it a more pewter-like undertone as opposed to silver.
