Hi all,
I am new to cake decorating and I was trying out my airbrush and wondering if there's a technique or a way to get my airbrushing to look more matted. I have only tried black and it turned out exactly how I was affraid it was going to- glossy. It covers great, but I am wondering if there is anything I can dust over it or add to the color to take away the shine. Or do you know if there a matted-based airbrush color out there?
Thanks for helping out!
I really appriciate it

What medium are you airbrushing?Fondant ...Buttercream?The fondant will dry matte after a few hours so if it looks glossy now it won't for long..Buttercream only looks gloosy if it is a IMBC or SMBC...

black looks shiny if you put on thick coats.... If you do a thin layer, let it dry and then keep building up layers, they will dry more matte....(this is true with red too...and then to a lesser extent the other colors)
