Hi Everyone,
can someone please help me? What is the difference between luster dust, pearl dust, and petal dust? My search function does not pull up any forum results, so I apologize if there is a thread discussing this already. If there is, can you please point me in a right direction?
As always, thank you in advance, P

this is what i got before from searching when i had the same questions as you have now..petal dust is used to achieve deeper hues w/ a matte finish..colors will intensify when mixed w/ liquids...luster dusts gives subtle color w/ a high sheen metallic like finish & is not liquid/water soluble..this maybe used alone or mixed w/ similar colored matte dusts to create a lustrous sheen w/o lightening the color..sparkle dust is similar to luster dust but is a larger grain size..gives flowers a wet to dewy look w/ just a touch of color..not water soluble..pearl dust produces a shimmery luster..hope this helps icon_smile.gif
