Petal Dust suggestions

Hello.
I have recently started to work on sugar flowers and was looking at buying some good petal dusts. I am an ardent follower of Alan dunn and while he suggests sugar flair as the best petal dusts to work with, it does kinda seem a lil too expensive for me since i need to get them shipped from the UK. Is there any petal dust brand that matches the quality of sugarflair in the US? Does crystal color have a similar quality or is there any other. GSA has crystal colors and Ck. Please advice.

Thank you
Nisha

I have never tried sugar flair but I love crystal colors. They have been at every show I go to. Very nice people. You can also buy directly from them at http://www.sugarpaste.com/catalog/orderColors.htm

I’m not sure if it would help but although we are in the UK we have really cheap shipping to the US and we sell the sugarflair blossoms, they are also available in discount packs to make them cheaper too. I’m not sure what the US equivalent is. Alan Dunn is fantastic, my Mum was lucky enough to have lessons with him when learning sugarcraft :) x

Crystal colors are the new and improved version of luster dust. They are EU approved and a US Certified food safe approved product according to the Manufacturer. Crystal Colors are great for use in coloring chocolate or cake frostings. They are like a concentrated food coloring that can be used for any application that you need food coloring for.
