Can I paint buttercream surface with luster dust?
If so, do I dissolve luster dust in vodka?
Thank you!

I made b/c pearls several times for border with tip 12, I let them set up and then used pearl dust with vodka and litely painted the pearls. It was really pretty. The pearl sheens in the can do great on b/c cakes also.hth You can mix your dust and vodka in a small spray bottle and use it that way also. I saw that at ices convention several years ago.

Thank you icer 101!
Spray bottle sounds like a really good idea! I want to get the metallic kind of effect for the rocket ship, so the paint brush will take a lot of time..

I just tried painting luster dust onto buttercream this week and it worked. You can also use vanilla extract or lemon juice. I don't have vodka laying around. icon_wink.gif
