Dusting Powders can give instant shimmer or color to
buttercream flowers, royal icing flowers,rolled fondant and gumpaste pieces,candy coating or chocolate pieces. 
Simply dip a soft brush into the dust and brush it on dry,
or for a much bolder look, make a dust paint using one
of the three recipes below:  Tylose, Lemon Oil or White
Spirits (alcohol).  
Most of our Dusting Powders are not FDA approved, but are pending approval.
We do have a line of FDA approved dusts- Platinum Dusts.  They have a pearl-like finish, with
several sublte colors available.

AVAILABLE DUSTING POWDERS
Dusting Powders are available in:
Platinum Dusts the only FDA approved dusting powders that produce a shimmery luster. Use silver
silk on flowers made from colored gum paste. When dusted on white petals, the other pearls in the
range exhibit a subtle colored sheen by reflection, although displaying no apparent color.
Luster Dusts  give subtle color with a sheen finish. In the dry form, use them for dusting. They may be used
on their own, or mixed with similar colored dusts to create a lustrous sheen without lightening the color.
Pearl Dusts produce a shimmery luster. Use super pearl on flowers made from colored gum paste. When
dusted on white petals, the other pearls in the range exhibit a subtle colored sheen by reflection, although
displaying no apparent color.
Sparkle Dusts hare a larger grain size with a sparkling finish. Gives gumpaste flowers a wet or dewy look,
with just a touch of color, except for white.
Petal Dusts are used to achieve deeper hues with a matte finish. When brushed on petals of white or pastel
gum paste flowers, a realistic effect is created.
Highlighters have a high sheen finish, and are available in silver or gold. They are non-edible. If wanting
silver or gold for edible purposes, use Super Gold and Moonstone Silver
If you are looking for a specific color and it is not available, consider mixing colors! All of the dust mix
wonderfully and the possibilities of colors are endless! 
For a Paint 
For most items, you can just brush on the dry dust. If you are wanting a stronger, brighter color, create a
"paint" by following on of the recipes below.
Tylose Paint:
1/4 teaspoon tylose powder  (76-3530)
1 Tablespoon boiling water
Additional boiling water
Mix the above and let set (like gelatin). Add a bit more boiling water until like piping gel. Thin with
boiling water. Add Dusting Powder to the mixture until an easily applied painting consistency is achieved.
Lemon Oil:
Lemon oil  (#42-525)
Stir lemon, a drop at a time, into the dust until you reach the desired consistency that you like to paint with.
Your edible project will have a lemon flavor. White Spirits: You may also use vodka. Stir the alcohol, a
drop at a time, into the dust until you reach the desired consistency that you like to paint with. We have
noticed that the edges of the flowers may melt using this method.
