A little confectioners glaze (optional)
By the way, never buy confectioners glaze without also buying some cleaning solution or dipping solution to clean your brush with.
Brush the bows with lustre dust to give them a shiny ribbony look.
Finally the buttons
I painted my buttons with confectioners glaze to get nice shiny button like finish.
What would I do differently next time?
I would probably use a different colour lustre dust as the white looked a bit white in places, I find it hard to find a pale pink luster dust that I like. Most pink luster dusts, that I try are a darker pink than i want.
I might also make try the button a different colour, I wanted more of a contrast in the textures between the button and the bow really.
