Glitters are small flakes, particles of paper, glass, or plastic of different colors that can be sewn on or glued to different surfaces. This is a wonderful invention because it can literally add more sparkle to our lives. It can easily help you transform everyday boring objects or create a holiday atmosphere. Branches, leaves, or feathers will turn into sparkling jewelry, and ordinary jars or bottles will turn into spectacular vases or candlesticks. Party decor, gift wrap, or postcard will shine when decorated with glitter.
Today, almost all greetings are sent via the Internet or social media. There is a huge selection of virtual postcards for every taste. But it is much more enjoyable to hold in your hands a real homemade postcard, made especially for you! This may be the simplest product but made with love. Don't forget that you can buy glitter in bulk online. Glitter in all shapes and sizes can help you create stunningly beautiful pieces. Modern technologies allow us to create color holographic pigment glitters, this is really magic! Glitter will help you give your card a festive look and even fix some flaws. Try using them in your art and you won't regret it!
In order for your DIY work to look neat, there are some rules to follow. It is better to use transparent glue, and there should not be too much of it. If you need to create a very small drawing, use a pen-glue and dry glitter, apply the image with a pen to the paper, and sprinkle glitter on top. Make sure there are no drafts in the room because the glitter is very light. When working with glitter, always put a blank sheet of paper on the table, this will help not to stain it, and also save money: at the end of the work, just pour the excess glitter from the sheet back into the jar and use it again.
Having once tried to use glitters in DIY work, you will no longer be able to do without them!
