For shiny glaze I use a 40/60 mix of corn syrup and vodka then I paint it on the cake. If the item is a single color, in addtion to tinting the fondant, I add color to the vodka before adding it to the corn syrup. Mix well and paint it on with a good brush.

I used this method for the wine bottle in this cake.

It takes about a night to dry. If you need it to dry faster you can increase the amount of vodka.

The only problem with painting a glaze over that...or steaming it really...is that the colors may run, especially the colors you've painted with. Confectioner's glaze wouldn't make the colors run but I would really hesitate to paint that much of it onto something...it's edible but gross.

When you say "spray" do you use an airbrush or a squirt bottle?

Airbrush, or if it's an aerosol can, that, obviously.
