I need navy blue and silver jimmies and, of course, cannot find them. Has anyone ever colored them with luster dust? I'm thinking if I put a little Everclear and luster dust in a baggie that I could shake them up to color them, like you do fondant pearls. What do you think?

I think it would give them a sheen, but not change color. could you use dragees?

I think the vodka would dissolve them. They are so small, and basically just sugar, and I think they would melt.

You could try just putting them in a baggie and sprinkle a little dust (no water) and see if it sticks. Just use white with the silver luster dust. Let us know what you figure out! thumbs_up.gif

I would also just put them in a baggie and add the dry lustre dust.I do this all the time with the pearl sparkle dust for my small fondant flowers and it coats them really nice!!
