I have several white flowers that I would like to make look a little cream colored. I was thinking of dusting it with Antique Silk luster dust. Do you think that would work? Is there cream colored petal dust? Does anyone know?

Antique silk works pretty well actually but mine is a luster dust, so it leaves a shimmer. I guess it depends on what you're using it on.

Antique silk would be perfect, but like acrosstx, mine is a luster dust and gives them a shimmer.

If you need a matte, but do not have time to order grab a box of artist chalks at your local hobby store and use the off white in that mix. You can scrape it down on a rasp (shaving it with a sharp paring knife will work as well) for a fine dust that translates well for petal dusting.

HTH!

I have a color called Magnolia as a petal dust that is pretty close to that. I think you can certainly find some colors out there close to what you need.

I have ivory petal dust as well, but it is a little darker than "cream"... I just assumed you wanted a hint of color...

Tonyas - do you think that I can mix the ivory petal dust and the antique silk luster dust to make it creamy color?
