For a glittery sheen use a soft short bristled paint or cosmetic brush, dip into the powder, tap off the excess and just brush on in a slight sweeping motion, or for a deeper sheen/colour mix a small amount of vodka with the dust and paint on with a regular artist paint brush.

hello,
thank you I have been using vodka to that but it does take a lots of powder to cover one flower becouse vodka does evapurate quickly so I was wondering... icon_surprised.gif also my client wants this colours to be very strong vivid like fuchsia and there is a lots of flowers to do. Can I also mix this powdre into my rolled icing to cut them out already coloured mixed???
thank you for your time everyone.

I would not recommend mixing the powder with fondant - it doesn't achieve the same effect as painting. Would suggest you use a paste color in the fondant close to what you want and then paint with your dust/vodka mixture. HTH
