Rainbow Dust edible metallic food paint can be used across flowerpaste, modelling paste and sugarpaste. It is great for almost all cake decorations, from tiny ornaments and sugar flowers to complete covering of cakes.

This versatile paint can be applied with a small brush for detail work, it can be sponged on for larger areas using the EasyCover natural paint sponge and can be sprayed through an airbrush for the ultimate smooth finish (with no need to thin).
Please note: We recommend using an airbrush with at least a 0.35mm nozzle/needle set up for this product.
Also available in the range is the Rainbow Dust Metallic Set of 10 which includes the most popular colours.

Half a bottle (approx 12ml) of paint was used to cover an 8 inch round cake (3 inch deep) which was sat on a 10 inch drum, also covered in sugarpaste. Two coats were applied to get an even metallic finish.

Rainbow Dust formula is water-based and therefore is easy to clean your equipment without the need for any nasty solvents. Simply rinse your brush or run your sponge under warm water for clean results. When cleaning your airbrush, also spray through some KopyKake cleaner. We strongly advise cleaning the metallic colours out of your airbrush immediately after use to avoid allowing the paint to congeal inside the airbrush and cause clogs.
