I ve read that u can use chalk to color flowers but i have tried and my flowers dont color as well as with petal dust. so i was thinking what if i try to make some petal dust with colored royal icing by leting it dry and than scrub it with a blade to make it powder, do you all think that it would work better than chalk. I am barely starting to learn how to make gumpaste flowers and i dont want to waste tons of money in petal dusts that are just going to be used for practice, some of my flowers look really beautiful but i want to make them look more real with diferent shades and colors. Thank you.
