Maybe- cover in fondant and paint it with silver luster dust? I'm not sure f that's the right color or look. Do you have a pic of the object?

For that color, I would recommend painting with Nu Silver (instead of silver). Nu Silver is a bit lighter than silver luster dust and I'm sure many places will have it. I get mine through CK.

Mix it with some pearl dust to give it the shine and shimmer

Great. Thanks so much for the ideas. Next question, i've never worked with dust. what do i use to dust it on with and how much would it take to do an entire cake?

I used Luster Dust mixed with lemon extract to paint the mag wheels on a cake. The wheels were made out of Satin Ice fondant. The cake is in my photos under From Bears to wheels or something like that. I just painted them with a paint brush until they were the color I wanted. For a whole cake you would probably use at least 2 of the containers. Just guessing though.

Probably the easiest to do is spray it on with an airbrush or the preval sprayer. If not you can paint it on too. I've also heard that mixing in pearl dust with the silver gives it a more "chrome" look.
