Those might work, but it will work better on royal icing or fondant than it will on buttercream.

They don't work well on buttercream, i believe. I would first tint the BC to yellow/bronze/brown color, then try to ad the spray. White would be too hard to cover successfully, to achieve full coverage you would need a lot of spray, and it would interact with BC, turn runny and such. 

Good luck. Post what you did!
