I've only used the luster dust on mmf, but I'm sure it will work on BC, but you'll have to be sure it is crusted. The luster dust can be brushed on either dry, or mixed with an alcohol base liquid, (vodka, vanilla, etc.) Hope this helps! Janice

I haven't done it myself, but I have seen others dry-brush luster dust on buttercream. I would think the liquid would affect the buttercrem if you decided to "paint" it on.

I've dry brushed it on crusted buttercream. Use a really soft brush and a light touch.

I am in a really small town (not much to speak of with supplies) We just got a new craft store in town ad they carry sparkle dust. Is this the same as luster dust? It is a very fine powder. Or is luster dust something different?

Sparkle dust is a larger grain than the luster dust,
and the pearl.
Well that's what it says .I've never used either.
I want to try it.

Sparkle dust also has a brighter shine to it. It gives flowers and other things a "dewey", sparkly appearance.
