I found letter stencils that matched the lettering on my bible, so I used dusts with alchol to paint and it leaked and smudged and never gave me the crisp outlining I was wanting. I read that a CC'er used silk screening, but I have no idea how to do that and when I checked in to it, it looked like a lot of money to invest in.
Any suggestions out there?

try stenciling it with royal icing tinted dk. yellow and then once it's dry...paint it with the alcohol and gold dust!

I used stencils and luster dust on mine but instead of mixing it with alcohol, I used it dry. They sell little pounders that are very inexpensive at the craft store for this purpose. I didn't have any leaks or smudging. I made a few books in my pics using this technique, if you want to take a look.

Is this lustre dust that you purchased at the craft store "edible"

I bought the little pounders to apply the luster dust at the craft store. They're sold where the stencils are. The luster dust was purchased on-line and yes, it is edible.. If you don't have luster dust, try Global Sugar Art. If I'm not mistaken, the gold I used was called highlighter dust. It gives more of a shinier gold finish.

Thank you for all the suggestions. One more question...what is a little pounder?
