Water or extracts.

It really won't show up with the intensity of luster dust however. I used it to paint the bow for the gift box in my gallery but you don't notice it in the picture.

I'm not sure about Hobby Lobby but Michaels carries Wilton's Pearl Dusts. The Pearl dusts are something they came out with last year and have added more colors to this year. They do not have as big of a variety of colors as you can find in Luster Dusts online, but if you don't have a cake supply store around, it is a local option. They do have a white, silver, gold, red, yellow, blue, green, violet, and pink. I think maybe another color or two I am forgetting. They are more like 'luster' dusts than traditional pearl dusts. And they can be mixed with extracts or alcohols.
