Hi everyone! I've never bought dragees before, I usually just make my own. However I have decided that I want to buy some. If I buy white ones, can I color them or at least make them sparkle with luster dust? I wanted to buy the multi-colored pack so I wouldn't have to choose, but they're out of stock, so I'm thinking white if I can make them colored myself. What do you all think??

oh, and what's the most standard/ "used most often" size? I'm bad at knowing size in milimeters!

they usually range from about 2 to 5 mm (around here anyway), and you pick the size that's most complimentary to whatever you're working on.

as for coloring them, i'm no help. i've never tried.

I brushed some of the white dragees with lustre dust and you could tell a little difference. I'll have to try airbrushing but I'd think that anything liquid base may not be good for them. Next on my todo list....sounds interesting.

Thanks for your responses. I guess I'll probably wait until they have the colored ones back in stock, since it sounds like it doesn't work that well.
