Can anyone suggest how to achieve an even and shiny gold/silver paint effect on fondant? i.e. you can't see the white fondant through the paint. I have tried the mini pots of paint which look alright at first but to achieve an even finish I had to add another coat. It fizzes on the brush and dries almost instantly and goes all gritty!
I have also used the good quality gold/silver lustre dusts mixed with clear alcohol. But the same problem with it drying and going all gritty occurs.
I saw on the American Ace Of Cakes hit show a cake with the silver colour all lovely and shiny but didn't see what they used. And having no luck finding out either. Can anyone help?
