The silver or gold highlighter that is already made up ? I'm thinking it would be GREAT if it actually worked ! I hate mixing the powder with vodka, because you never get the same consistency.....

I have used a similiar paste I bought from a Ebay seller from the UK but it tasted horrible and was a nightmare to get off the counter.It also had a really chemical smell so I pitched it!!

I also used some from the UK and I could not clean them from the brush, or anything else...needless to say, I am mixing my powders...they may be good for some gumpaste decorations, but they are not to be painted on cake - is smells like laquer (sp.?).

Yes...That too!! I couldn't get it off the brush..It was like you needed paint thinner...so I thought anything that chemical can't be edible!!

I'm still pretty new to all this ~ can someone explain what powder they mix with vodka?

Hi Kookie....... there are powders called "highlighters" which you can mix with something of high alcohol content that makes a REALLY shiny gold or silver....... you can use it for accent on your projects......

You mix Lustre Dust with any clear alcohol like vodka or white rum...some people use clear vanilla also...make a paste type liquid but no too thick and you use it to paint Metallic colors onto decorations/cakes etc..

Got it ~ thanks!
I'll have to try it soon. I always wondered how everyone got their goodies to be so shiny! icon_biggrin.gif
