Hi, I have an order for an anchor cake. I was wondering of anyone has a suggestion on how to make the anchor appear to have a dull metal look to it? My hubby said it is called a powder coat on the metal. I want to paint it with silver luster dust, but don't want it too be too shiny.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Luster dust has a shine to it, but petal dust gives a matte finish. HTH... icon_smile.gif

I agree, use a petal dust and then maybe atiny bit of orange or black brushed on for a weathered look.

CK has a couple of silver luster dusts that may help with a more metal look. They have ones called Moonstone and Nu-Silver that have a more gunmetal look. They carry these at my local cake store.
