Has anyone here used SILVERY MOON LUSTRE dust? Will it work well for giving a silver-gilded edge to flowers, or is the color too faint? I am making ivory/white poinsettias with silver-gilded edge & silver stamen/centers.

Thanks in advance,

I am very familiar with that color - it's one of my favorites.

Unfortunately, I've never had a chance to use it.

So, here we go, using experience with other luster dust colors -

Are you going to paint the edges with the dust and a liquid like vodka or extract, or did you plan on just dusting it. The painting would make it more prominent, and would be better for gilding the edges.

If you are going to enhance the veins of the leaves (for those who do not know, they are really leaves, not petals), then I would use a small flat angle brush and just dust along the major veins, to give them a glimmer in the center.

I'm thinking of using lemon extract where I want darker. I'll try dusting the edges with a brush to see howit goes on 1 or 2 before I go all crazy making a bunch.. We should both post pics of our efforts! icon_biggrin.gif
