What is the best way to get this even looking metallic tier?  I have tried alcohol/extract + gold dust brushed, but it doesn't look even as in this photo.  What are people doing?

oh that baby has air brushed written  all over it. good job of it to, but the darker areas make me think they used a bottom syphon airbrush, with pulsed air.  i would say three to four layers of luster dust mixed with vodka, because everclear would dry faster and not leave dark swirls. it is a beautiful cake.  if you dont have an air brush machine, you can achieve a look close to that with a luster dust everclear mixture applied with a sponge brush, make sure to drag the sponge, with no pressure or it will bubble up and leave lots of dark spots. hope this helps you out.

So I found and bought AmeriColor Gold Sheen Airbrush color and also Gold Glaze (not sure who makes it). I also got some sponges and sponge brush.  Going to try your suggestions Tesso.  Also want to try doing some faux finish...
