Silver paint

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have advice on what to use for silver painting? I can't find anything really edible at the craft store. Do you just use the luster dust? On TV they always seem to have some sort of liquid paint. Any information would be much appreciated!

At Michael's Duff has some silver paint that you spray on from a can. He also has a bunch of other colors.

The liquid you see on tv is luster dust mixed with alcohol (vodka). HTH

I recently did a cake with alot of silver on, and found that mixing the luster dusts with vodka, Worked well, but it needed ALOT of coats to be a deep bright colour, and also i had to let each coat dry before moving onto the next because it just streaked off the bottom layer if i didnt , Ive heard the sprays are very good so they may be worth trying, i wish i had one it would of saved me about 7 hours of work!

Color your buttercream or fondant gray, then use luster dust over that.
