As so many people seem interested in the diamond dust, I contacted the
firm that sells this stuff here in UK to make sure I got it right and
found out the real name of the stuff I have been using:
Ultra fine polyflakes, aurora.
"Diamond dust" is actually another product and rather boring, like
sugar. They don't label their packs, hence the confusion, which seems
rather silly of them - they sent me the wrong stuff originally, but I'm
Does this name sound familiar to anyone? It is hardly flakes, it is more
like a very fine glitter - dust is a better term, really.
I have also found it comes in a range of colours - aurora, aurora gold,
aurora blue, aur. violet and multi-light. All cost around 60p ($1) per
pack. They sell jars for 7 pounds, ($10). I think I have some
experimenting to do....
