So here's a fun little craft I have been working on. I made a few necklaces and hair bows and am selling them now on etsy... but i figured since you gals love glitter like i do, I'll post some pix with a tutorial on how I did them. Things you will need
some sort of basic adhesive... I used an acrylic paint gloss varnish just because I had a lot of it laying around from when I was in school and doing big paintings, some people choose fabric glue...others elmers.
items to glitter
paint brush or sponge brush (small for all the crevices)
super glue (i prefer loctite over most brands)
glitttttterrrr of all colors, i prefer the fine glitter because it looks smoother when you're finished... martha stewart glitter has been the best so far.
jewelry and accessory hardware (chains,clasps,hair clips...etc...)
clear coat by krylon (i found it at ace hardware super cheap and awesome for so many projects)
I'm gonna do the tutorial on the hair clips but both were done just about the same way
I used bones to make the hair clips but you can use anything.... first step take you item and sand paper and scuff the item. This makes it easier for the glue to stick to and the glitter will coat evenly
take your paint brush and brush on the adhesive you chose in a smooth layer making sure to cover everything
then sprinkle on your glitter...wait an hour or more for the adhesive to dry so you can check and see if you have any bare spots... just re apply some adhesive and glitter to whatever spots aren't covered like you want them.
after the item with glitter has dried for at least 3 hours or so you'll wanna take it outside and spray it down with the clear coat...let that dry and then coat it once more for optimal sparkle keepage.
once the item is glittered and coated an dried... it's time to make some funky shhhtufff out of it. I used the glitter bones and loctite and glued them to some hair clasps to make a fun hair clip. You can also drill holes and make jewelry, or do whatever with them.
