You may ask anything after a compliment like that!! Thank you!! I use regular luster dust - the kind you use when dusting flowers - - only difference is you may need a larger quantity - I mean you will need a greater quantity - Add vodka to the luster dust (95% grain alcohol is the best because it evaporates more quickly). Experiment with thin consistency mixture and thicker consistency mixtures. I've found that either work. However, when applying the thinner mixture, it runs down the sides of course, and you've got to apply in sections and have your paint brush ready to just spread the "drip" out. No big deal, just different. Different bristles give you a different effect . . . I applied the mixture with a fairly soft paint brush (not too soft), and then buffed with a very soft rounded paint brush. You may also find you need to apply more than one coat, just depends on the color being used. When I received my larger quantity luster dust colors, I rolled out pieces of fondant and placed on cake boards, and tested each of the colors. I kept the cake boards with the color tests, to refer to when designing another cake. I can see how the dust actually colors the fondant. Hope this helps! Good luck! I was a tad intimidated to try this the first time, but it's really not that hard or scary!
