AHow do I get an effect like this...

I'm going for blue to gold to white so that can be airbrushed but how is the glittery effect done??


Any ideas appreciated! :)

Possibly royal icing stippling or perhaps sanding sugar.

it looks a bit golden in color.  maybe turbinado sugar?

well there's gold colored sanding sugar too--and opal and silver and lots of really pretty and i think sophisticated colors--good old sugar can be just dramatically gorgeous imo


idk that looks super ombred--maybe the sugars are graduated in color (ombred) too?


but the lowest dots look like they are not on a black background--i guess i haven't make anything quite like that or something--looks awesome but i'd have to practice to see how to duplicate it--


it looks like the lowest dots are on a white back ground as if they were placed before the dark airbrushing--
