I recently read of using luster dusts with vegetable oil or confectioner's glaze instead of alcohol for painting on fondant or gumpaste.

Has anyone used these 2 methods before? Any tips or advice for a newbie?

I've not tried either, but I can't see why it wouldn't work if you wanted the extra shine. I suggest you roll out a scrap of dough and just have a 'play'. Alcohol would certainly be easier from a clean-up point of view though.

I totally agree. Thanks.

I have used the vegetable oil with luster dust and loved how easily and evenly it went on. It did, however, change the color of the dust.

I paint with dusts mixed with confectioners glaze all the time! Not only do you get a good shine, but the dust does not flake off like it does when mixed with alcohol.
