I was in a pinch the other day and I washed the silver off of dragees! Worked great and was really fast (dragees in strainer and I used the sink sprayer - laid out on paper towels for awhile to dry, then shook in bag with pearl dust)

i use pearl sixlets. I get them at a party supply store. They are larger than dragees. and they are chocolate. they make beauiful pearl borders. They have a wonderful luster.

Make your own. Roll your fondant or gumpaste out with the pasta roller. Use your writing tip to cut small circles and roll away. They are consistent is size. It can take a little time, but doing them this way makes a very uniform pearl.
