Hiya,

I want to luster dust a bow with a very pretty pink pearl dust I have. The problem is, when I have dusted thing in the past, it looks streaky. Is there a technique to this to keep it from looking streaky?? I hear some people use Everclear and the dust. Can Vodka be used instead, I do not have Everclear? Also, do you mix the two together? Can someone explain. Thanks so much for any help you can give!

I like to dry dust the gumpaste when it's soft, roll, cut a strip, run the luster dust over it with a clean blush brush and then fold into a loop for a bow.


If your bow is already made, try dry dusting it still you won't have any streaking at all!

I mix the dust with some vodka until it's the consistency of paint. Then I apply it with a sponge. Full coverage and no streaks!

I use a large cosmetics brush that is only used for cake, and dry dust. You can see photos on the Fondant Bow Tutorial under 'Cake Stuff' on the cakeboss web site. thumbs_up.gif
