This hybrid lustre dust gives a high-sheen metallic colour finish when dry-brushed on gum paste, fondant, or royal icing creations after they have set, or it can be mixed with a small amount of water, clear alcohol (e.g., vodka), or oil-based liquids for painting, highlighting, or airbrushing. The lustre dust may also be mixed into clear piping gel to give it a sheen or may be used in sugar work. The dust may also be used as a food colouring to colour icing, fondant, gum paste, cookie dough, or other food items (although the lustre effect will be lost).
