Anybody buying disco dust in bulk?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

I bought disco dust in a 1 pound bag and it is just about gone.  My employees complained when they started using it because there was a filler in it and the dust was not nearly as sparkly?  We are about out and am wanting to find another source. I bought the pound from CK.  Any thoughts?

Um, what do you use it on?

That wasn't her question.

 

 

I haven't seen it in bulk like you're asking about but I found a lot of companies that sell it at a discount if you buy 6 or more, 12 or more etc of the small 5g or 3g containers like this one http://www.discodusts.com/. I've never purchased anything from them but I was just trying to be helpful icon_wink.gif

If you will be using it on anything edible you'll need a food-safe product like crystal colors, I don't know if they sell in bulk but you can contact them and ask:

If they are, they are unlikely to admit it.

AND? I just wanted to hear it from her that she isn't sprinkling it all over the cakes, since it is plastic.

Let's try to stay on topic here, OP now knows (if they didn't already) that disco dust is not food-safe so there's no point in discussing that topic any further.

Unless I am mistaken, and I'm not ( ;-D ) Crystal colors aren't sparkly.

Exactly....  I buy my disco dust in 5 grams, so a pound is almost 91 of those little canisters. I thing of disco dust lasts me about 2 years...

 

 I know from another product I buy that weighs about 14 grams (1/2 of an ounce) that is a decent size bag. Multiply that by 32 and I would have no idea what to do with it all...   detective.gif

Oh I know! It looks like a tiny amount, but it lasts forever. I have a pot of rainbow dust, and it still has a lot left. Bought that pot at least 4 years ago. But I rarely use it.

Oh gawd! AGAIN, it wasn't her question! This is why I RARELY post on CC! Please help others that need your advice without judging and going off topic! If they ask a specific question such as "Is this product "food safe?", then, by all means, DIG IN and give all your opinions!!

Please try to stay on topic here, if you want to bicker you are free to take it to PMs.

To reiterate the original post of this thread :

 

I bought disco dust in a 1 pound bag and it is just about gone. My employees complained when they started using it because there was a filler in it and the dust was not nearly as sparkly? We are about out and am wanting to find another source. I bought the pound from CK. Any thoughts?

 

If anyone has some information as to where this member can find good quality disco dust (presemably in the USA) please share your thoughts.

 

Please don't derail the thread, guys.
