Specific techniques and creative due process are required to get the most optimal results from your glittering paint plans. 

Here’s a step-by-step guide to ensure you achieve the desired, magnificent outcome:

1. Surface Selection

Based your choice of glitter-infused paints on the surface you wish to decorate for your specific project and consider additional necessary preparations.

2. (Particle) Size Matters

Smaller for subtlety, bigger for more of a BANG – you must choose the glitter particle size that is most apt for your project’s desired effect.

3. Application Tools

Always wear protective gear, and then, according to your preference, use a paintbrush, a sprayer, or use them all!

4. Applying the right primer to the surface

It is very important to apply the right primer to the surface you plan on painting. If you are applying over new drywall, it is recommended to use a water-based PVA primer. Applying over an existing wall, furniture, or wood? Apply a multi-purpose primer.

5. Light Coats and Heavy Patience

Glitter-infused paint must be applied in thin, even coats, with each coat allowed to fully dry to ensure even distribution and prevent clumping. When brushing, we recommend applying it in a crosshatch pattern to allow even distribution of the glitter. 

6. Ventilation and Cleanliness

Work in a breathable space and make cleaning up as you go easy with soap and water during application.

7. Test Before Applying

Find an inconspicuous spot on your project to test out the glittering waters of your paint, ensuring it works well with your chosen material. 

8. Subtle and Controlled

A little glitter goes a long way so use a light, controlled touch during application.
