Happy Thursday! Welcome to the 9th day of 12 Days of Giveaways!! I have loved the responses to the last couple of giveaways! I promise that I read every single response and am compiling information for future blogs! I have concentrated on informational posts instead of including tutorials so far. There are a ton of blogs that walk you through tutorials on all kinds of cake decorating subjects, but several of you mentioned that you wished I would do tutorials here. That will be the subject that you will have to discuss to enter my next giveaway.
This is a BIGGIE…at least to me! I had been teaching dusting for a while and as we got to more advanced elements, it seemed like we needed more colors to achieve the realism I wanted. As before, I worked with The Sugar Art (www.thesugarart.com) to create this Kit. I bought a Pantone kit and went through my Beginning Dusting Kit to figure out what their Pantone number was. Then, I looked at the same Pantone set to figure out what colors I needed that weren’t in my beginning set. I sent the Pantone chart to The Sugar Art and the amazing Elzbieta Frys worked her magic to CUSTOM MIX these colors for me. And when it was done, I had 28 brand new…not on the market colors that I even got to name! This is my Dusting Collection 2 or my Supplemental Dusting Kit, whichever name I’ve called it around you. I sell it on my web site (www.RuthRickey.com) for $85. Lately, these dusts have been retailing for about $4 per jar, making this a $112 value. This collection has, hands down, the most rocking pinks and purples I’ve seen anywhere!!
Here are the pretty colors in the set:
You cannot tell in the photo, but it has fuscia, hot pink, aqua, tiffany blue, and oh so much more. I grab this set first for flowers now!
I am going to give one of these sets to one of my lucky readers. Today, I want to know whether you want me to keep doing informational blogs or if you would like to see instructional tutorials, also. If you want tutorials, what would you like to see first?
To enter today’s contest, comment on this post and tell me whether I should add tutorials or not. If so, what do you want to see first?
