Extreme Glitter is Bewitching

In some cases, you can mix categories of paint, as long as it's Plaid, This Halloween you can display a glittering witch with a face and hands that Glow-in-the-Dark --courtesy of a special Mod Podge by the same name. Even the pumpkin's face and the bats' eyes will light up as the lights go down. But that's not all that makes this witch exciting. Plaid's FolkArt Extreme Glitter Paint is now available in a convenient new 2 oz. size and that opens up a world of possibilities for glass painting. Extreme Glitter is compatible with Gallery Glass and can be marbleized with Gallery Glass directly on your project. I usually use it it straight from the bottle by substituting a "Liquid Leading applicator tip" for the flip top cap. For this project, I placed dots of the Glitter paint into sections of my design, then outlined and swirled a similar color of Gallery Glass through it and combed back and forth (marbleizing) until paints were well mixed. Results-- a thoroughly bewitching combination of  shimmering, vibrant color. Use the Marbleizing Technique when applying Extreme Glitter straight from the bottle if you are using it to accent Gallery Glass colors.
Now if you are addicted to Glitter, as I am, the good news is that you can add at least 10 new colors of shimmer paint to your collection.
