Are you trying to paint with it? Or you do want to put it everywhere, but you don't want it to clump?

I mix a drop of everclear and a little bit of luster dust in a small bowl and then take a 0, 1, or 2 sized paint brush to paint accessories on my fondant cake. Hope this helps!

This is a simple trick. mix a spall amount of vodka into your pettal dust or luster dust and you can paint with it. Use a smaller brush for details and a medium size to fill in areas. You can also paint fondant with a homemade mixture. Dilute royal icing with vodka, add food coloring and paint beautiful designs onto white fondant. Thats how Margaret Braun does it! And thats how I did this cake. No mixing tons of color into your fondant anymore.

if you want to do it try, take your time, and always always take off extra dust. i love a blusher brush for a big area.

I also use something like a blush brush, only it's specifically made for cakes. But it's great because you can do the whole cake in a few minutes - but it doesn't throw tons and tons and tons out really thick. It's just a thin little layer and it looks beautiful.
