There are many different brands of petal dusts and I have not used them a lot, I was wondering if there was much of a difference with them. I was just curious if anyone had any preferences and why?

Bump. Google search brings up this thread. E-Bay has 4g. for $2.29 each which is a good price (I think). But I don't know if I'll get what I pay for..........as in.........buy cheap get cheap.



If you needed to buy dusts today, whom would you buy them from, based on price and strength.

I recently bought these Petal Craft ones: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007ZH8VRA/?tag=cakecentral-20

(except I didn't buy them from Amazon, it's so you can see what I'm talking about!). I bought set A and set B. Set C is lustre colours I recall but I don't have so much need for them. I am really happy with the selection of colours you get. I got both sets A and B because I couldn't decide between them. Workability wise, they are very comfortable to use with the palette format, you don't need to have a bunch of little pots around you, and if needed it's just as easy to mix the colours on parchment like you would regular dusts.

Do you think I could pop the colors apart or out of the compartments? I really like that pricing!! Thanks

Crystal colors are the best quality-wise. The colors are richer and you don't need to use as much to get a deeper color. They're more expensive than the average but they go farther so you won't end up spending more money in the long run. They're also FDA approved for food use so you can use them to color icing and fondant. www.sugarpaste.com

Thank-you Costumeczar.............that's what I really wanted to know. I'd rather pay more if they go further.

they're excellent colors, too...whenever I do anything using the purple one that she makes and post a picture of it people go crazy asking me what color it is. It gives you really true colors that don't fade out, either.
