I made these ballet slippers out of gum paste. They dried completely- about 4 days- and today I brushed Wilton's pink pearl dust over them. It did not go on consistently- some spots are darker and others are lighter, even though I tried to go over the lighter spots several times. This gives them a real blotchy look. I'm regretting attempting the pearl dust. Is there any way to correct this without starting over? Is there a way to get a more consistent look or to remove it and try again?
This is my first time working with both gum paste and pearl dust. Any suggestions would be so greatly appreciated!
