Rainbow Dust Edible Metallic Paint
Radiant Metallic Paint Ready To Use and Easy-to-clean your equipment after use. Once dry the lustre pigment is sealed within the surface - no dust or smudges!
These versatile paints can be applied with a small brush for detail work, To use the paint to cover the entire cake, first cover your cake in sugar paste and leave to dry ideally overnight to firm up. If creating a stacked cake in all the same colour, stack before painting as this will save on paint used. Then using the our EasyCover sponge, slightly moisten with water, wringing out any excess and putting the paint in a small palette tray load up the paint onto the sponge and dab all over the cake, reloading the sponge when needed. If you need to apply two coats make sure that you leave the first coat to dry completely before applying the second. Your cake can also use our paints in conjunction with an airbrush or the most basic way, using fine paint brushes for highlighting detail and features. All methods achieve great results, its just deciding which is most suitable to the result you are trying to achieve.it can be sponged on for larger areas (using the EasyCover sponge) and they can be sprayed through an airbrush for the ultimate smooth finish (with no need to thin).
