Has anyone ever tried to mix luster dust with vodka in a squirt/mist bottle and lightly mist a cake? I don't have an airbrush and was wondering if this might work at least a little bit to give an overall sheen to the cake? TIA

I'm not sure the spray would be fine enough, and you may get drips. I would just paint it on with a wide paintbrush (to help avoid streaks), or rub the surface lightly with white vegetable fat and brush it on dry and buff with a large (new, clean) blusher brush.

I've used Super Pearl Dust in a PreVale sprayer, and it worked GREAT ! You can get them in the paint dept. at Lowes or Sherwin WIlliams, etc. I paid about 7 or 8.00 for mine...... LOVE IT !

I would just dust the cake with a large blush brush, or get a can of PME lustre spray. It's like $12-14 a can, but you can get a few cakes out of one can.

Well, I don't know what happened to my post, but it only took the first few words..... I was TRYING to tell you about the Prevale Sprayer that I used and it worked VERY well......

Another post about the Preval sprayer:

Just so you have more info, and can decide for yourself if it's something you want to use.

Thanks ladies. I've been out of the game for some time now and I didn't even know about the PME spray! Looks great, I ordered one to try.
