Paint & Dust with Zero Fuss! 

Sweet Sticks Alcohol Free Activator is a revolutionary solution to turn our Paint Powders & Lustres into pure paint designed for the Religious, Vegan, Conscious Caker and Stencil Artist decorators.

This product is a game changer for the religious and vegan cake decorators as it consists of zero alcohol and it only uses vegan friendly ingredients.

It paints on almost all mediums and dries completely rub free leaving your finished product perfect for your customer. Pack your cookies and cakesicles with complete ease knowing that your product won't be damaged during pack down.

To use on stencils or large surface areas we recommend our 'Paint & Dust with Zero Fuss' method to ensure a perfect even coat. Simply Paint a thin coat of activator onto medium on its own first. Then Dust your lustre on afterwards for the most amazing metallic shine.

For a paint, simply mix equal parts or until you have found the right consistency.

As this product is water based - large surface areas on fondant and chocolate do not work well when mixed together forming a paint. We would recommend trying our Paint & Dust with Zero Fuss method as mentioned above.

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Alcohol free activator sets dry to the touch ie. rub free. Which you cannot achieve this finish using rose spirit. Now it’s possible to bag up your cookies without worrying about your lustre smudging onto the cello bags. 

Large Surfaces

Make Paint using Alcohol Free Activator + Lustre:
- Dip your brush into the activator and apply a thin layer onto the surface. Less is best. The less back and forth with the activator the better! Using a Lustre Brush, apply lustre onto the wet area. 

- Once covered, use your dry Lustre Brush and brush away any leftover lustre. 

- You will need 2 brushes for this technique. One we and the other must be dry. 


Make Paint using our Alcohol Free Activator + Lustre:
- Place the amount of lustre you need into your palette and add alcohol free activator. Mix until it forms a paint like consistency.

- This method is great for small surfaces such as raised fondant cookies and finer details. It works well on chilled swiss meringue buttercream

Cover a Fondant Cake:
- Using our Wide Flat #5 brush apply activator in small sections with an upward stroke. Go over the wet area with a dry Wide Flat #5 brush and repeat this method once the whole cake is covered. Use the dry brush away loose dust. 


Stencil with our Alcohol Free Activator
- Dip your brush into the alcohol free activator and apply a thin layer onto the surface. Less is best. The less back and forth with the activator the better! Using a lustre brush apply lustre onto the wet area.

- Securely hold the stencil on the surface as you brush the alcohol free activator over the top. The stencil will become sticky and it will stay in place.

- Take your dry brush and dab your lustre over the stencil and brush away any loose dust. - When you are finished, slowly remove the stencil and admire your work of art !

- This method works on Ganache, Fondant and Buttercream. It will not work on Swiss Meringue Buttercream because of the oily surface.
