I hate to ask a stupid question, but I just don't know!
I know amethyst is purple, but the photo looks really dark.
I actually need black luster dust, but aparently it does not exist. I keep seeing petal dust, but it is matte and I need something with sparkle.
I am painting a gumpaste shoe btw.
So what would you guys recommend for me to buy? I need it for Aug. 7, so I need to order now!
I'd say it would be a definate purple when you paint with it even though it looks almost black in the pot. How about using the black petal dust with a smidge of silver or pearl luster mixed in?
Just a thought
I did a black and white cake a few weeks back (white cake with black flowers). I experimented a wee bit (coz i wasn't sure what to use) including mixing black dust with alcohol then painting , mixing black tint with luster dust (snowflake colour) but i found the nicest result came from colouring my flowerpaste black (using black paste colour ) then dusting with the snowflake luster dust. I'm not sure if the names of the lustres are the same over here - if not the snowflake looks like a pearl white colour in the tub but only adds sparkle not any whiteness - don't know if that makes sense I also tried using a silver lustre but the result was not as nice.
Hope this helps.
I'm pretty sure that Global Sugar Art has the Black dust.....you could try them...they ship fast too !!
Thank you so much ladies. I had already painted my black gumpaste shoe with silver luster dust, but did not like the result. (for the look I want) I will purchase the black petal dust and try that.
try black disco dusts...globalsugarart now has them.
