I got some gold hologram disco dust but am not sure how to use it. I've used luster dust before (brushed on dry and used with vodka to paint with). Do I use the disco dust the same - it seemed a little coarser maybe? Just thought I'd check since it's not that cheap. Can't wait to use it, it's so sparkly! icon_biggrin.gif

Don't add vodka to it just sprinkle in onto your goodies

Disco dust is finely ground plastic glitter. It's non-toxic, but not edible. It should be used on decos that will be removed before serving.

It can be sprinkled on wet surfaces. If you want it to stick and stay in place nicely, you can brush on a thin coating of piping gel, gum glue, meringue powder mixed with water, egg whites mixed with egg whites, or crisco.

If you work over a large plastic lid with a notch cut in the edge, it's easy to crease the lid at the notch and allow the excess disco dust to go back in the pot.
