Mix 1 Tbsp. of gelatin with 3 Tbsp. of cold water and let it soak for 10 minutes.
Heat 1/2 cup of water, sugar and vanilla sugar in a saucepan until vapor appears above the surface.
Remove from heat and mix in the soaked gelatin. Stir until gelatin has dissolved completely.
Add 1/2 of cold water and let cool before use.
Sprinkle a little bit of pearl dust into a small container and mix it with a few drops of the gelatin base.
When the mixture is smooth and there are no clumps left, add more gelatin base.
The amount of pearl dust you use will depend on the level of transparency you wish to achieve.
If you wish to achieve a more dense texture, add more pearl dust and allow the base to cool down and thicken up a bit.
For a completely opaque texture, add a smidge of titanium dioxide to the base.
