Pearl dust works for pretty much every color except black. Or, is there a trick to it?

I've needed it for tux lapels, but now I need to make a black bustier and would really like to give the whole thing a satin sheen.

Pearl airbrush paint works well. It doesn't dull the black as much as just using the dust.

Here is a cake I did recently, the color wasn't black to start with, it was a charcoal gray, but you can see it didn't dull the color too much.

The attachment thing isn't working, maybe this link will?!/photo.php?pid=31388960&id=1339078711&ref=fbx_album

Beautiful cake, Loucinda! I think I actually have some airbrush pearl. Better check before I head out to the store. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the info, zkl3. Unfortunately, this cake is due in less than a week, so I won't be able to use it this time, but I'm definitely interested in it for future use!
