For tinting flowers or other decorations!
Coloring dusts are what bring your flowers to life. I recommend you apply 'petal' dust to dried flower first, then if you want it to glisten, apply lustre dust. If you want metallic items, choose HIGHLIGHTER dusts.
Although these items are classified as "edible" in Europe in the United States they are classed as
"NON-TOXIC FOR DECORATION ONLY" AND NOT considered edible. Buy at your own discretion
