It will NOT look good, and it wil taste worse, if you try to put silver color on buttercream, no matter whether you use dust, spray, whatever. There are many things that you can do with buttercream that you can also do with fondant, but this isn't one of them. You should tell the customer she can have silver fondant or buttercream, but not both. It's up to the decorator to tell people when things aren't going to look the way they think they will.
