Hi, lots of decorators do. I have used pearl dust and vodka or everclear. Shake it really good in a bottle and then pour into airbrush . Clean your airbrush really really good each time you do this. I mean really good. Mine has never clogged. I am extremely carefully cleaning mine after any colors before i put it up. hth They do make sheen airbrush colors, That is what i use now. Pearl sheed, gold sheen , silver sheen, etc.
