Hi everyone. I may have to do a pillow cake and i want to use pearldust to give that shiny effect. I never used this before. How should i apply it? Just dust it on to the pillow with a brush or mix a litlle vodka and paint the pillow? What do you guys think is better?
Thank you so much for all the good advice looking forward to hear from you
wgoat5 gave a nice example of airbrushing w/ everclear vs. dry dusting in this thread:
It depends on the look you want - if you want a more subtle sheen, go with dry dusting. If you really want a lot of pearly lustre, mix with vodka or lemon extract and paint it on. HTH!
Don't forget that if using the pearl dust it WILL effect the color a bit ... will mute it a little... unless you are doing white I would try to see what it will look like on a small piece of colored fondant
But they do have blue pearl (although if you see the container it doesn't look blue) it does give a blue sheen..
