HI, I just thought I would post this for any one who is interested...


I have made my own 100% edible glitter many times when I couldn't find the exact color I wanted or I needed a lot of it.....


You just get a bottle of Gum Arabic and mix some (you don't need much) with water and whatever paste color you want.....It takes a long time to mix so I put it in a container and shake it up then let it sit awhile and repeat that until all the Gum Arabic is desolved and you can paint with it....About 1 part Gum Arabic to 2 parts water.....


then Paint it on a clean piece of glass......Let it dry...

using a straight razor just chip it off like you would to get paint off a window....


that's it     instant edible glitter......any color you want.....as much as you want
