Can you use the Lucks shimmer airbrush colors as food coloring to tint a batch of frosting, and if so would the frosting be a glimmery color? I've never used it before, so I'm not positive of what it is...hope this isn't a silly question! I'm making a champagne-colored cake and it would be a bonus if it was shimmery! I need to pick up whatever I'm going to use today, so if anyone knows I'd appreciate it! Thanks! icon_smile.gif

Same question about the Amerimist sheens also. If they give the tinted frosting a sheen, or the shimmery effect lost?

My thought is that the shimmery effect will probably be lost. You could pull out a small amount of buttercream and try it.

Just keep in mind that the airbrush colors are liquid, so they can thin the icing down if you have to add a lot to get it the color you want.

Oh I had no clue that they were liquid. I need black also so I think I'll just work with americolor. Thank you. icon_smile.gif
