Not all dusts work the same. The wilton dusts you can buy at the craft store don't give a real metallic look. You can make sparkly yellow or sparkly gray with them but that's about it. The dusts that you can order online will give a better metallic look.

I use airbrush color and I apply it with a regular paintbrush because I don't have an airbrush. You have to practice a bit so you don't end up with streaks.

Yes, to get the best silver/gold sheen upon a cake I would have to say use Americolor airbrush colors and either hand paint it or use an airbrush machine because some dusts just give you a silver color and not a metallic silver/gold sheen like the airbrush colors....
