What works best? When I visit our local decorating supplier I'm always so confused on what the different types of dusts are best used for and how to use them (dry, vodka mixed)... Does anyone have a guide/cheat sheet maybe? icon_smile.gif

Great video outlining the difference between all the dusts:

Personally, if its for small details, I prefer to just paint on a metallic gel color

I use Americolor silver airbrush color. I use it straight from the bottle, no vodka.

I agree with AnnieCahill - Americolor airbrush color straight out of the bottle. I use the silver and the gold both this way. It's awesome! Just brush it on with a paint brush and it's great! if I want it even shinier, I will mix it with some silver or gold dust and it's even better.

Thanks for the video! It's perfect! Also using the airbrush color painted on, I'm definitely going to try that.
Thanks for the help!
