I need to make a tire cake. I need silver color for the rim. How do you do that?
You can buy it from americolor
Hi staceylilycakes - welcome to CC!
What will the rim be made out of? Fondant? Gumpaste? If so, what many people do is wait for the fondant or GP to dry, then apply a "paint" that is made of either luster dust or pearl dust (gray-silver) or disco dust (chrome-silver) mixed with either vodka or lemon extract. The key is to use something alcohol-based and clear, not water. This will allow it to dry very quickly.
Does that help?
I also find that if I am going to paint fondant/GP silver it helps to start with gray fondant/GP rather than white.
Thank you for the help ladies. It is going to be fondant, so I will start with the gray color then paint it with the glitter dust/ vodka mix. I need it Friday, so I can't order the americolor in time.
Thank you for you time!
I think the disco dust will be too sparkly for this. Someone just asked about gold color and I copy and pasted one from ShirleyW.
here it is
I just copy and hasted this from one of shirleyw's postings.
I have the perfect answer for you, got this hint from the customer service rep. at Creative Cutters in Canada. Mix 3 parts gold luster dust with 1 part Super Pearl luster dust, thin with alcohol or Everclear and paint it on. The same works for shiny silver or chrome, mix 3 parts Nu Silver luster dust with 1 part Super Pearl Luster dust.
