I'm sure this has been asked a million times before, but I'm frustrated trying to search.
Can anyone tell me what is the difference (if any) between lustre dust, petal dust, pearl dust, disco dust, and whatever other kind of dusts there are?
I need to make blue pastel colored seashells for a cake in July, and I'm just aggravated trying to figure out the differences.
Thanks for all your help!!
Petal dust is a flat color, used a lot with flowers. Pearl dust gives a sheen that basically will make your color "pearlized". Lustre dust also has a sheen but doesnt give that whitish effect that pearl dust does. Disco dust has a glitter to it, will look like glitter when you use it, kind of flaky look. If you need something that is solid color gold or silver then you go with a highlighter. Some are non edible so you have to make sure you check first. Fairy dust is similiar to disco dust.
Hope that helps!
