What's the best way to recolor white gumpaste calla lilies? Airbrush with color, Airbrush with petal dust/alcohol...or hand brush with dust?

Thanks!

We prefer to dust with dry petal dust and then steam them with our steamer.

Oh ok, cool....

Is there a fast way to dust them? icon_smile.gif I need to make calla lillies lavender. I'm trying to figure out what's best, just make the calla lillies myself, or purchase...but if it will take just as long to dust the premade ones as it will to make them myself, maybe I should just make them myself???

I airbrush then add shading with dust if needed and depending on what flower I'm doing.
