I did the bible cake it's in my pictures on here (sorry I couldn't upload it) and wanted to make the edges of the pages guilded so I painted it with some glitter dust mixed with a little vodka. When I first started painting it looked a little watered down and cheap. So I mixed more powder and more and more. Anyway, the gold never looked the way I wanted it to look you know that thick rich gold like I see the pros use on Amazing Cakes. I think it might be the brand or type of dust I'm using or maybe it's something else I'm not sure icon_cry.gificon_redface.gif I could use some suggestions PLEASE icon_sad.gif What is a good brand/type to use and what are any tips do you ccers have to offer?

It might be the dust you're using. I have found that you can NOT paint with Wilton. Global Sugar Art dusts work really great.
