glitter question

Post by traveler » Fri May 29, 2020 8:29 am

What sort of adhesive would you suggest if I want to completely cover a die-cut with fine glitter?

I've never had large amount of fine glitter before, so I never would have tried to do this. I use glossy accents or matte accents to put chunky glitter in a flower center. I use a glitter pen to put teeny amounts of fine glitter, but no clue how to do cover something with fine glitter evenly.

Do you have elmers glue or modge podge?  I would put some where you want, add the glitter, when dry add a bit more glue to seal it.

Use double sided sticky sheet to make the die cit, especially of its delicate. Then pour it on with a sheet of paper underneath to capture the excess and run it in well with your finger.

I was going to use Nuvo glitter paste for something like this the other day, but then I realized that it would be WAY easier to do embossing! I highly suggest glitter embossing powder as it's super less messy. WOW embossing has the prettiest glitter embossing.

I already have the glitter, I won tons of it in my NSD prize. Loose fine glitter is many pretty colors. (I also won chunky glitter, but I have more experience with that). The idea is to use the glitter I already have, preferably with adhesive I already have so I can do it today.

I don't think I have this either.

If you want to do it right away, I would take a piece of scrap and try a couple of glues you have & try them out to decide which works best!! I usually do this with stencils paste and when I get a new glue I use scrap and do tests with it to see how it works!
