Have you heard that old joke that glitter is the herpes of the crafting world?
That’s why I hated glitter. It got everywhere. It was impossible to clean up. Until I started doing this. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this earlier. It would have saved me so much time and clean up.
Last summer I won a Mod Podge contest. My prize package included several different bottles of MP, including sparkle and glitter. I literally gasped when I saw it. Genius! But sometimes I want more glitter….so this is what I do.
Simply add glitter to the Mod Podge (MP) and mix. Add more glitter for more coverage; add less if you just want a little sparkle.
Use a brush to paint the glitter glue onto your project.
The Mod Podge dries clear and seals in the glitter, so you don’t have to worry about it “shedding” every where. It’s a no mess glitter application!
You can use it for detailing, like I did with this zebra striped jewelry box:
Or apply it to your entire project, like I did with this crown:
I’m glad to say that I don’t hate glitter anymore!
Want to know how I made the crown and the jewelry box? Those tutorials will be coming up. I’ll also be showing you some other glitter paint products I recently tried out! Be sure to subscribe or follow my Facebook page to be the first to catch my new tutorials!
Yay! I just LOVE glitter and mod podge! They go hand in hand! Next, add some seed beads! Now, that’s my kind of crafting! Go Morena!
Love the look of glitter, but usually avoid it because of the yucky mess. This is a WONDERFUL idea!!! And I just adore that little crown – beautiful!
