Yes, it will bead up, but it still works. Also, try to drizzle the syrup as thinly as you can, but I know that can be hard. I use a little disposable pipette. If drizzling is tough, try dropping small droplets here and there as best you can.

I'll have to try it again. I've had success with mica in oil for swirls on the top, so I never tried it with glycerin again.

The problem with food coloring in the United States is it is not FDA regulated as skin safe, so for those who sell, they cannot legally use it.

I spoke to one of the cosmetic manufacturer. Here. N he suggested to use food coloring n mix it with TD so they stick n don't morph... Not sure how far tats true...
