Hi, I am hand rolling some fondant pearls. When I put them in a container and swirl them around in the pearl dust, it doesn't stick to them very well. I'm using Wilton white pearl dust. I let them dry a little before I put them in a container, and they look great until I pick them up! All the dust ends up on my fingers. Am I missing a step here somewhere or is that just the way it is and you need to be careful? Thank you!!
I don't usually let them dry very long. Maybe that is why or maybe the Wilton dust, never used that one.
try with some fairly fresh ones.
I'll do that, I have read that the Wilton dusts are just not that good. I have CK dusts too, but since I have to order them online, I never use them. LOL I guess there's no point of having them if I don't intend on using them!
I've never used Wilton - but I've made the pearls with other dusts - I only let them dry a little so they wouldn't squish in my fingers when I picked them up! When I did handle them I did get dust all over my fingers, but there was still plenty on the pearls! HTH!
It is the Wilton dust, that just won't give you the pearl luster, it really is just more of a light sparkle..
The PP are all correct - it isn't you - it is the dust you are using.
I tried to use Wilton pearl dust, wasnt very happy with it. I use the CK super pearl dust. I do however use the Wilton Pearl dusts for my seashells and coloring some of my gumpaste flowers and it works fine.
