I need to try to match a ribbon that's a real dark, almost brownish-gold color. I'm thinkiing I should airbrush it, but I'm not very good with figuring out what colors to mix - should I do a brown base, with gold on top, or the other way, or something else? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I wanted my photo corners to look antique in this cake:
I used Wilton gold lustre dust (they also have a bronze colore I have used)
and mixed with vanilla and painted

I've used gold lustre dust mixed with lemon flavoring, then after it dried I used black petal dust dry - - just a touch.
