How can I achieve a gold color with airbrush. I have americolor metallic and shimmer set. I will airbrush gumpaste flowers?

and also. I will make my own ivory fondant, can I airbrush it with a pearl sheen americolor to get a shiny/metallic effect on cakes? Or, how can I mix this metallic and shimmer colors to get an ivory?

Please help..thank you

The Americolor Gold Sheen and Pearl Sheen will be your best bets. They are very easy to use - just spray several light coats to get the coverage you want and be sure to shake the bottles well each time you add to the pigment cup. I love those Americolor sheens! I have colored gumpaste and fondant with great success. Pearl will, of course, be the luminescent ivory look of pearls rather than a metallic shine - very soft and lustrous.

Thank you ibmoser. I didnt get any response while I was decorating my cake so I had to experiment. And I did just what you said but I only sprayed 2 coatings . I also mixed gold and bronze, then gold and pearl sheen. I was happy with the result though they're lighter than what I really wanted.

I also wanted to get a gold fondant so mixed brown and yellow, i think it was a success.
