I first tried it on the tops of some salsa jars I've been saving. They're a great size for random little craft supplies and oversize buttons. The glitter adds just enough color and sparkle to liven up my craft room. The silver photographed the best but I also did some with orange and dark pink glitter. You can see the pink ones in the picture below.
Next I painted a small canvas a pale silvery aqua then added some big blue chevron stripes. The chunkier glitter is some I found in a box of paint we borrowed from my mother-in-law. I've been wanting to play with the chevron pattern lately so this was a fun little way to play with that.
This cute birdy has been a work in progress for a while. I bought a plain ceramic bird at Michael's a while back but couldn't decide what to do with it. It was yellow for a while but I didn't like it. I made too much of the silvery aqua paint for the chevron canvas so I painted it over the yellow. Loved it! I found some deep teal/purple glitter in the sample pack and added it to just the wings and tail. The colors actually match a screen printed bird in our room that I love.
I plan to glitterize lots more :)
