    realy I just did it and it worked?! I put a picutre up but I have a bad camera; it's that light black spot in the middle the darker spots are because I dusted it.

    This will probably not work, the powder is no where near fine enough for one, and would probably not stick to the residue left behind, even if it did it would be merely a fingertip sized blob
