You need a "sugar caster" -- it's used in baking, to apply a thin, even layer of powdered sugar to a confection or small cake. It's similar to a small flour sifter, using a moving friction wire to feed controlled amounts of powder through a fine screen. In fact, just a screen, as in a strainer, might work for you; load the strainer and just shake it horizontally to distribute the starch grains. Otherwise, its off to the kitchen store (but start at Goodwill; stuff like this turns up from time to time, and folks don't buy it because they don't know what it is).
