Here's a tip that will amaze you! Adding some glitter gives an object a hint of shine, but if you add a little more of it, it adds sparkle and if you add A LOT of glitter, the result gives a bold decoration. When Jenn Bayer, a professional makeup artist in Charleston, SC, decided to add a nice touch to her makeup studio, she decided to decorate a wall full of glitters and the result is brilliant!
Bayer first wanted to use a glitter wallpaper but it was really too sparse and the glitter sprays were too subtle. At the end, she decided to mix glitters with Mod Podge to create a paint that she could use to cover her entire wall.
The materials used by Bayer include:
-Glitters in two sizes for a varied texture
-Sponge brushes and a putty knife were used to apply the mixture
-Goo Gone for cleaning.
Bayer wanted the entire wall to be covered with glitter, so she mixed them with Mod Podge to get a thick consistency like concrete. A thin consistency gives a purer appearance.
A sponge brush is perfect for the mixture to be spread evenly. This thick consistency does not drip like paint does; it falls apart. Bayer notes that it is a "rather messy" process.
Here's the end result, it's magic isn't it?
Here is a video of the whole process:
