I worked with Royal Icing last week and it turned out nice but was 'flat' in color. I tried to dust with luster dust but it didn't stick.

I would like to do a larger piece this week using color flow and wondered how I could add some shine or sparkles to it?

When the RI is dry, you dissolve your lustre or sparkle dust in a bit of strong, clear alcohol, and brush it on with a small brush. The thicker the paint, the better the coverage.

The alcohol will evaporate, leaving you with sparkly RI.
