Yes, it is safe...whether the pearl dust will clog your airbrush and force you to break it down to clean it is another matter. Cut the pearl dust with vodka and give it a try.

The worst thing that can happen is you have to clean the airbrush.

Thanks!If it works it sure does open up some more luster colors I can use!

Or you can buy the americolor sheen airbrush colors, which I love! NO mixing, just open the bottle and use. icon_smile.gif

An FYI - when using the sheens or the luster dusts, you need to clean the airbrush about every 3 fills - that helps keep it from clogging.

I mix everclear with my pearl and luster dust when airbrushing. Make a very thin liquid. You may have to go over it again, but your airbrush will like you better.
