I'm not sure if this question has been asked before, I couldn't find an answer so I'm hoping someone could help me. I'm making a cupcake bouquet for my friend and she wants a metallic purple color. I have no clue how to achieve this look. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. icon_smile.gif

you are looking for luster dust. My suggestion would be "smokey amethest" if you are looking for intense purple, (it's also my fav) or if you are looking for a more subtle effect the "violet" is a nice softer purple.

thank you so much. She wants more of an intense purple. I'm new to this and I've never used luster dust. What is it exactly and how do you use it? I'm sorry for asking questions that are probably on this site somewhere.
