Hi Guys,

Any tips to get an even coverage of lustre dust on a large area of fondant? Last time I brushed it on with a paintbrush (about 2cm wide) and it was quite patchy, but I was adding a lot of leaves and flowers on top so managed to hide most of it. This time I will have no such luxuries........ it will be pretty much open fondant with all my streaks plain to see icon_redface.gif

Would it be easier to mix with alcohol and 'paint' on?

TIA

You use a big huge poofy blush brush from the makeup section. New and clean of course.

Try painting in layers. Paint, let dry and paint again.
