I read on here that I can mix luster dust (or pearl dust) with a little vodka and paint it on. So, I did but it looks a little streaky. Can I put on another coat? Maybe I should use a bigger brush? It looks alright, so I'm afraid to mess with it and ruin my piece. TIA.
Yep, you can definitely do more coats. I add 2 or 3 coats usually. Just make sure your first coat is completely dry first.
Are you adding vodka to the luster dust with a dropper? You only need the tiniest amount. If you add too much vodka, it will be thinner and streakier. If the 'paint' is a bit thicker, you only need one coat.
Thank you so much. I think I had it way too 'runny'. THANKS!!!!
If you brush over the same spot while it is still wet it will make it streaky too. To me it is best to do light coats, letting it dry then coming back and doing another one, until it is the color you want.
I was reading on the back of the Wilton's Pearl Dust to use Lemon Extract? I was wondering if you guys found the vodka to be better or the Lemon Extract? I want to try painting Pearl Dust onto some RI flowers.
