That I’m fond of glitter is both an understatement and not news to most of you. You’ll imagine my delight when our first delivery of Bo Bunny’s Glitter Paste arrived. The range of colors is impressive and once I adjusted my mindset, I realized how much potential there is for the product.
“Adjusted my mindset”. Exactly what does that mean?
Initially I looked at the product in the jars, admiring the iridescence and the light refracting on the surface of the particles of glitter, and wondered how I might use it. After thinking a bit, it occurred to me that Glitter Paste is much the same as Texture or Modeling Paste; a thick product meant to be applied with a palette knife. And just like Texture or Molding Paste, Bo Bunny’s Glitter Paste retains all of the dimension you create as it’s applied. That’s is the most remarkable characteristic in my opinion. There are plenty of ways to apply a layer of glitter. Not many of them maintain the exact dimension once dry.
Then I played a little more and realized that there are other ways to work with the product besides to apply it with a palette knife. In the video you’ll see me use a brush and one of our Foam Stamps. Neither produces the same results as if you were to use them with paint, but if you open your mind to the possibilities, they each work with Glitter Paste.
Perhaps the most obvious application for Glitter Paste is with stencils and you’ll see that early on in the video. The first thing you’ll see me do is to spread the Paste on a surface using a palette knife. If you want a thin layer of glitter, this is one way to achieve the look. While I left my mound of Glitter Paste intact, you could spread it very thin, leaving only a little sparkle and no dimension at all. That versatility is one of the most interesting and exciting qualities of Glitter Paste.
