If you are looking for a matte color then you want petal dusts, not the luster dusts. There area many companies out there.

I really like Crystal colors because they are food save, have many wonderful colors and you can use the dusts to color your icings as well.

Which ones are you talking about?

If you are talking about the Shimmer dusts, that come three to a package and are in short round containers with white lids? Those are not meant to be dissolved in liquids. You would wet the place you want them them sprinkle them on.

If it is their pearl dusts, which are in the skinny tubes, those do dissolve in liquid, I've used vanilla extract and ever clear with them many of times.

The ones I mentioned above, do dissolve. But if you are doing flowers, you probably want to dry dust for a softer look then to mix them with something.

I did that with the flowers put a little wetness on the peddles and then sprinking the dust on it but I was looking for a smooth look like as if they are real. so the short bottles with the white lid I don't like they look granie to me.......
What is out there that you can use that does not show the grains and does not shimmer.

I will order a couple of the other ones you are tell me about and see if that is what I am looking for.

any more Ideas to try.

I not only want the colors for flowers but I would like to use them for make up on faces.

You want to look for petal dusts if you are looking for non shimmery colors for flowers.
