So lately I have been trying to unlock the age of mystery of piping in metallic colors, and I have found 4-5 various techniques.
Granted, I don't have any of the stuff on hand to try out the things I have been reading, so I don't know how they compare to each other, or even if they work.
Most of the articles were dated from around 2009, and since then we have had a baking breakthrough in the form of the Amerigel Gold Sheen Airbrush Color.
So I was just curious if anyone has tried coloring things with the color, as opposed to using it strictly in the airbrush. I would imagine that mixing it in to a super stiff RI would get me to a nice pipeable consistency after incorporating a decent amount of the stuff.
ANo idk never used that product I don't think but I just wanted to mention that there are recipes to make piping gel online and the formula in nick lodge's international school of sugar craft book 3 page 187 uses pg to make a great product-- do you have that recipe?
it's 2 t. powd sugar and 2 t. metallic dust, clear alcohol to adjust consistency into 1 teaspoon piping gel -- works great -- stores in fridge indefinitely
it pipes beautiful and brilliant
Yea, I saw that one and it was one I was definitely going to try.
I just see that one being a tad cost prohibitive because of the insane amount of luster dust needed per small batch.
If it does the job though, who am I to complain?!
Aa little goes a long way--he advises to use a 0 tube with it -- it is so pretty -- but yes you need to shell out for the dust -- i made it a jar of dust at a time --
i mean you wouldn't be using it say for example shell borders -- you would pipe the shell border in BC then overpipe in this -- it is pricey it's an accent and it's awesome -- i wanna go make some ;)
and if you were going to cover an entire area it would brush on but that's when you'd change gears and whip out the airbrush --
brush embroidery with it would be awesome
edited to say -- it does not get lost in the shuffle
Do you have any pictures in your gallery of this stuff on a cake?
no sorry -- i did this work for my employer --
I'm mixing up a batch of metallic gold piping goo right now!
Ill post pictures of the results here soon!
