Is there such a thing as Luster Spray? Has anyone ever tried to make some of their own perhaps? I am doing a dragon cake and would like to use Luster Dust but I think it would be easier if I could spray some on. Any ideas? thanks

Yes, there is. i think I saw it either at globalsugarart.com or sugarcraft.com. I haven't used it yet, and was curious to see if anyone had yet. I want to say it's made by PME...but i could be mistaken. icon_redface.gif

Yes - it is made by PME and works nicely. I don't have an airbrush so I've used it for stencils and light misting on cakes. Adds a nice shine. Both cans I've used tend to clog - so I spend some time rinsing the nozzle under hot water.

I wonder if I would find it in SA?

Probably not. I haven't been able to find anything that isn't Wilton, here. I order everything. However I've heard tale that HEB carries dragees. If there's a cake supply store in town, please tell me!

I almost bought the spray from globalsugarart. Is it a shiny gold? Like when you paint on gold lustre dust?

Thanks everyone. I just ordered some blue Luster Dust spray from Global. I am making a dragon cake for next weekend. So hopefully I will get the luster in a few days. I will let you know how it works.

Can this be used on RI or does something in the spray break it down?

I have a TON of RI flowers to make for a wedding cake/cupcakes coming up in June and I'd love to add some pearl shine on them but not sure if it would work. Might buy a can just to experiment but thought I'd try the expertise of my fellow CCers first. icon_smile.gif

I just bought and tried the "pearl" spray by PME. It worked great! Very shiny.

What did you use it on? I'd like to know for sure from someone who used it on royal icing. icon_smile.gif I'm worried I'll make all these flowes then have them disintegrate when I use the PME spray. (of course, I'd do a test batch) But I don't really want to buy it for this particular project unless I hear from someone that it is OK on royal..... icon_smile.gif

I used it on Royal. Check out the cake in my avatar - With the exception of the 50, all gold is RI sprayed with PME gold.

I have used this and LOVE it!!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

It is made by PME. I have used the pearl spray and it is awesome! Such a pretty touch on the buttercream! Great for making things sparkle!

I highly recommend it!

I did end up using the blue pearl luster dust on my dragon. It came out awesome. I would use it again. But I have never tried it on royal icing. But it sounds like it works on royal also. Give it a try and let us know. Here is my dragon.

Just finished a couple hundred RI flowers this weekend - then all sprayed in PME pearl lustre spray. I LOVE THE STUFF! I will post some pictures soon but WOW - I already know I will use cans and cans of it in my future projects...even at $10 a pop. TOTALLY worth it.
