Hi everyone,

I have just finished my daughter's RI tiara for her 5th birthday cake and have picked up the pearl dust in the colour that I absolutely love. My question is how to use the pearl dust. Do you just dip a brush into the liquid (in this case it will be absolute vodka) and then in the dust or do you dissolve it in a certain amount? If anyone can help me in this I would so greatly appreciate it! I am a little nervous to do a trial and error test as the dust is a little expensive for a possible 1 time use.

thanks in advance
Shannie

Looks like the rest of your post was cut off. Sometimes that happens when you type text that is automatically highlighted. In this case, p-e-t-a-l d-u-s-t was the culprit. Can you try again?

Okay trying again...lol.

I have just finished my daughter's tiara and picked up the dust...lol ...in the colour that I would like to use. Now I am wondering as there is no instruction as to how exactly to use it, whether I use a dip method, as in dip the paint brush in the desired liquid and then in the dust and paint along the lines, or whether I dissolve the dust in the liquid. And if so what amounts do I need...I know a little dust goes a long way and I am so nervous to do a trial and error method because this is my 4th tiara and it hasn't broken yet (knocks on wood).

thanks so much for any help!
Shannie

I think it depends on the look you are going for. It seems with the metallics you'll get a much richer look with the liquid, but I don't ever get my mixture right icon_cry.gif You can mix the dust with vodka or extract.

Maybe someone will chime in and give us the magic ratio that prevents streaking!
