I've been wanting to shade some of my gumpaste flowers (just BARELY learning) and am not sure what the difference is between luster and pearl dust. Also what kind of paint is used to get gold and sliver...some kind of dust mixed with alcohol? Thanks!!!

I'd like to know the answer too. I almost bought some at the store the other day but didn't know what the difference was so I didn't know what to get.
