In this free video from Pretty Witty Cakes you will learn how to mix the perfect rose gold airbrush colour by the queen of airbrushing and Pretty Witty Academy guest tutor, Dawn Butler.
Airbrushing is an amazing way to easily add colour to cakes and cake decorations. It can be used to colour a whole cake with a single colour, or you can use different techniques to add shading, ombre effects, lustred details and so much more.
It is often used for wedding cakes to add a whole lustre effect or maybe a single lustred tier, but it is also widely used in novelty cakes to add depth and details that can't be achieved without an airbrush.
When mixing airbrush colours, always start with your lightest colour first.
By using an ethanol based airbrush colour you aren't restricted on what you can airbrush, they are especially good for airbrushing onto chocolate work.
If you do decide to use lustre dusts instead of airbrush colours you can mix them with clear alcohol to get the right consistency.
Don't forget to save any airbrush colour you may have left over in a jar. It will keep well for a future project.
By being able to mix your own airbrush colours that perhaps aren't available to buy ready made, you can match colours perfectly. This can be particularly useful for wedding cakes so the cake can tie in with all the other details of the wedding.
