Well, I can't seem to buy the right silver and/or gold dusts to paint with-- ugh!!!! I have spent so much money and time searching for the right ones-
I am looking for ones that willo give me a real silver/chrome look also maybe a petwer and a good gold and bronze- well- seems I need them all!!!ha I keep buying the wrong ones-
If you recall where you bought them, that would be great too!
Global Sugar Arts has a good variety of dusts that make good paints.
Pooh- I have their site up on my other browser anxiously awaiting replies- I did order dusts from Global-- but I did not order the right ones- when i added the lemon extract- the color was too sheer-
I'm looking for the name of the color and the brand-
But thank you for the direction to Global- its much appreciated
If just keep layering on the color until I get a solid gold or silver. Let each coat dry completely before adding another coat or else it will look streaky.
I used GSA's Nu Silver on these cakes:
and the Sunflower Sugar Art Super Gold and Pale Gold (from Global Sugar Art) on these cakes:
Make sure your paint is thick when you put it on.
I wet my brush in vodka, dip it into the powder, then stir it around on a plate until it's smooth. Sometimes I have to add a little more liquid or a little more powder. You just have to play around with it.
