I'm looking for gold and silver dusts to get a nice metallic color on fondant accents... A friend of mine is going to the UK and someone recommended Edable arts dusts. My question is, has anyone tried these? They seem to have all sorts of gold dusts and I'm not sure which would give a color closer to real gold. Which dusts would give a metallic silver?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm from the UK, and I have to admit I've never heard of "Edable Art Dust"
The more well known brand of dusts is "SugarFlair"

I found a website that sells silver and gold "lustre dusts"
They sell ordinary gold and ordinary silver which are quite light, but they also do ones called "Antique Gold Edible Lustre Dust" and "Antique Silver Edible Lustre Dust" I think these two colours are more the colours you're looking for because they look deeper colours.

This is the website -

This is the link for the silver (but unfortunatly no pic)-

This is the link for the antique gold -

If you do a search of silver dust and a search of gold dust on this website it shows you all their gold dust and silver dusts, they do "royal gold" "radiant gold" "antique gold"

Hope this info helps, good luck! birthday.gif

If you're going for a real metallic look, make sure to mix a tiny bit of alcohol (vodka) in with the luster dust. More than one coat if you want a deeper color.
