Quick question. How do you get disco dust to stick to any fondant or gumpaste made decorations? I've tried water and that is just a mess. TIA!

Have you tried fondant glue. Water with a little Tylose added.

I think you can just brush it on dry... That's what I do with luster dust, I would think it would be the same with disco dust... That's my guess...

I have used vodka. Just brush it on lightly to make the surface tacky. Then it dries quickly so you don't damage your decoration. You can also brush on a little piping gel. But that won't dry completely and will stay a little sticky.

I generally steam the dried decorations, which makes them tacky/sticky, then just sprinkle it on with a dry paintbrush and leave to dry.

You can also try spraying the water on with a spray bottle. Use the misting spray. It works and its less messy when u do it before you put the decorations on the cake.
