Good Evening All!
I just wanted to share a quick experiment that I tried tonight. I think it was a sweet lady named Janet that initially shared this glittering technique. Normally when I glitter say a wooden letter, I first spray adhesive on the letter and then sprinkle glitter on it. After I shake the excess off, I then spray it with Glitter Blast Sealer to keep the glitter from flaking off. (I think everyone is pretty familiar with this technique.)
Well, a while back Janet had said that she mixed Mod Podge and glitter to make a thick paste (kind of like spinach dip) and then coated the letters with it and let them dry. There is no messy glitter, and the Mod Podge dries clear. I had some letters that I needed to glitter tonight, so I thought I would try this out.
So, the result is that it definitely works. The Mod Podge did dry clear. The above pic is of the "B" completed, and the "U" has a fresh layer of the glitter, Mod Podge mixture on it. It took two coats for full coverage. While I like this technique, personally I think I will stick to my first technique with spray adhesive, glitter, and Glitter Blast Sealer. I think it's just a tad bit sparklier that way, and the drying time for the Mod Podge is a negative for me.
But overall, still a great alternative glitter technique.
Thanks for stopping by!
