what is happening when you paint. Make sure you are only mixing a few drops at a time, so its not too diluted. Or do you mean its streaky

I use everclear and it mixes very well. What kind of luster dust did you buy? I use Aztek Gold and its very gold and would work great for what you are trying to do.

i usually use everclear... with dusting powders. what is the name of your dusting powder... maybe, mix it little thicker. but be sure it is mixed good. and mix a little at a time.. it can, t be runny thin...

Not knowing *how* it is not working the best we can do is suggest you thicken it up by letting it sit so some of the vodka evaporates and try again.
&/or add more powder/dust. It should be about like a thick mud.
Please let us know if there are other issues so we can help.

Not to burst your bubble, but I use real gold dust with a dry brush. I goes on easily for fondant and chocolate. The tiny jars I buy really last forever.

i've tried, but pearl dust doesnt give the effect of the photo u showed. you need luster dust for that solid gold i think

To get it like the pick you need gold luster dust and drops of vodka, the thing is that different LD will give you different effect.

I have used the gold pearl. I dip the brush in my "liquid" then into the dust and paint it on. That should work.
