Fantastic Find Friday -- Silver Sprays

Oooh. It's been awhile since we've talked about fun new cookie products! And that's been all my fault. Because there is some really cool stuff that has come out this year. Let's back things up a little though and talk about silver sprays today.

If you don't have an airbrush, you can still get a metallic finish on your cookies by using an edible silver spray. I tried out the Wilton silver color mist and PME lustre spray. And I've got to tell you... I was a little surprised! When I sprayed the PME silver -- I wanted to EAT IT. It smells amazing! The other surprise is that neither of the silvers are actually opaque. I had some blotching on my cookie (due to an experiment in blotching!) and neither of the sprays covered it.

Wilton Silver Color Mist
$3-$6 (Find it online HERE)

Pros: 
You can find this pretty much everywhere crafts are sold. 
It's cheap.
It's a true, light silver color.

Cons:
It smells like spray paint. 
At only 1 1/2 ounces... it doesn't cover a lot of cookies....like maybe 2 dozen cookies at the most.  



 PME Silver Lustre Spray
 (Find it online HERE)  $10-$15

Pros: 
It smells AMAZING!!
It's a darker pewter color.
It contains 100 mil...which roughly translates to 3.4 ounces so it covers more than twice as many cookies as the Wilton spray. 

Cons: 
$10-$15 for some silver spray? That's almost crazy. Almost.




Here are the two sprays for visual comparison.  The Wilton spray is on the left and the PME spray is on the right. My real opinion? I like them both. When you factor in how much spray is in each can... they cost about the same. They cover about the same. The PME smells way better, but the Wilton is more readily available. It pretty much comes down to weather you need it THIS SECOND BECAUSE YOU FORGOT THAT ORDER WAS DUE TOMORROW or not. Well, that and which silver you like better -- the lighter Wilton silver or the darker PME pewter type silver.
