How do I achieve "bronze" color for gumpaste?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Can anyone tell me what colors I would use to achieve a "bronze" color for my gumpaste? My bride wants bronze colored hummingbirds on her wedding cake. Thank you so very much for you help.

Just a guess here; brown and red?

To get a sort of metallic bronze colour try mixing gold lustre dust with a little bit of brown paste colouring (could also add a tiny tiny bit of black also to darken it) , dilute with a bit of vodka and then paint that on and it should give you give you a nice bronze sheen if you are going for that look.

i have only done this in a tiny amount so just try it on a piece of fondant first to make sure it's the colour you want, just try not to dilute it down too much or the colour won't be as strong

For the bronze fondant covered cake, they have shimmering bronze in airbrush colors.

Any tutorial in covering an 8" height tier with fondant? My cakes are mostly 4" height , I'm a little apprehensive in doing that. Any advise?
