I have a bride who has chosen Navy blue as her main color and wants navy pearls on the cake and cupcakes. Any ideas or experience will be most helpful. I live in a rural town and have order my supplies online or make them.

Thank you!

I've never done this, but I'd think it would be much like if you wanted to colour coconut. Try putting a few into a container with a lid and add a drop of the navy colour. Cover the container and gentle shake it up and see if that gets them blue.

I had to make very dark purple pearls recently. What I did was I bought the color from Beth Parvu, (crystal colors) and mixed the dark purple crystal color powder with a little bit of super pearl luster dust....put the pearls in a small container with those 2 colors and shake! (I used a medium size souffle cup that had a lid) It worked out perfectly!

I agree completely w/the last poster, this is the way I color my "jimmy" sprinkles if I dont have the color I want. Use white sprinkles and coloring powder, dust,highlighter,or disco dust. Put them in a bagie and shake,shake,shake! icon_razz.gif
