Can you use alcohol with petal dust?
I don't think you're supposed to. Its just for "dusting" flowers, etc. HTH
I've seen people doing it (included Alan Dunn). Even the flowers that have some spots in it are painted with alcohol+dust. Another way is dissolving a little powder in cacao butter to paint on the cakes.
Thanks. I was just wondering if it would deepen the color for flowers. I know I can use it dry. I did a red and it's not deep enough.
You could try in some spare gumpaste. You have to get the right amount of powder + alcohol (otherwise it could not be as uniform as you'd like)
Another thing you can try is nontoxic chalk. I got an assortment of 48 at Michaels for about $4. Every color imaginable and I used a tiny grater and shaved it into dust. It worked great. Used it in the center of my orchids. I havnt tried to add alcohol to the chalk though but have with the petal dust and it works fine.
