This is silver leaf – but it has to be edible

azel ...

thanks tortacouture for the response :)

i thought so too but i know they are expensive and so i thought there might be other ways to achieve it. what about gold sheen airbrush and confectioner’s glaze? what do you think? thanks a lot

Jessica ...

You can airbrush although it wont be exactly the same.

Silver leaf isn’t expensive. I bought 50 sheets of 80×80 and it cost me about £10

really!? i will be looking for some then, perhaps online. my local store here in canada sells it for $5.95 each for a 8cm x 8cm (3.14″ × 3.14″) leaf.

Karin Giamella ...

Try silver highlighter dust from CK products. You can airbrush it on and has better shine than the lustre dusts.

thanks Karin @ bluesheepbakeshop for the tip :)
