"Oil Slick" colored luster dust?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,

I am trying to make a gumpaste raven, but I would like to be able to add a little bit of a shine to it since in certain light, ravens feathers have a black oil slick/rainbow type of coloring to them.

Does anybody know of a dusting powder that could have this effect on black gumpaste?

Thanks!!

I saw your post a day or so ago and hope you haven't needed this info before now. I didn't answer then because I wasn't sure I could remember what colors I used when I made some iridescent feathers. I have lots of luster dusts and just used layers of different ones until I got the effect I wanted. I know I used some pinks, greens and blues. Heck, I just experimented until I found what I was satisfied with. Here is a pic of what I am describing: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1977379/autumn-turkey-hunt. I don't know how beneficial this info is, but I just couldn't let your post go unanswered.

My best advice is to always make a couple extra of what you want to color so you have room to experiment. Hope this helps you somewhat.

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.
