I, too, grind most of my own dusts. I keep mine in plastic bead organizers purchased from Michael's. They come in stacks of 5, (each one screws onto the base of the one above) and there are 6 to a box. I have several boxes and have sorted them as to petal, luster, etc., with a label on each.

It keeps them well organized and easy to view at a glance.

I buy 2 oz disposable cups with lids at local restaurant supply store (like what you get "to go" salad dressings in.) Very cheap for a sleeve of 50. I actually use them for mixing colors, adding vodka for painting, mixing and storing gum glue, etc.

I went to the container store and got the ones that screw into each other. I believe they come in stacks of 6.

May I ask, what are you grinding up to make petal dust?? icon_confused.gif

I use a small metal strainer. Just rub it against the strainer "wires" and it comes out very fine.

I buy these bead storage containers from Michaels. I already filled up one and bought a new one last night ($6 w/ 40% coupon). I love that they are clear, so you can easily see your colors, plus they are the perfect size!

This should help you with your questions.
