I have been wanting to try some german glass glitter ever since I saw miss mustard seeds tutorial. I ordered 1 oz of silver glass glitter from meyer imports ( no link, but I just googled it) I didn't want to order more then an ounce in case I didn't think it was any better then normal glitter, but it is. I will be ordering some more I think.
I had these chip board stars and hearts hanging around. I brushed on mod podge on the fronts and the edges with my new glitter.
It comes in a baggy, so I put it in a jar, but I didn't need to paint or prime the colorful chipboard, it completely covered it all.
As you can see it's pretty dense and very glittery. You really can tell a difference. If you have a hobby lobby by your house the chipboard letters are 50 percent off this week. I am planning on making a banner for my tree that says" silent night holy night". Miss mustard seed just glued twine to the back and had the twine seperate the letters but I may try stringing some white and silver beads I have inbetween. That's the project for tomorrow, hopefully I will be feeling much better. Just another tip, with the german glass glitter you really do need to use chipboard, even thick paper won't hold the weight of the glitter. Have a great day my blogging friends and hopefully tomorrow will be tree garland day.
