Technique Directions

  1. Apply glue dots wherever you'd like glitter on your project. Here they have been added to the centre of each flower.
  2. Carefully cover each one with glitter and tap off excess. Gently press glitter into the glue dot.

Tips & Tricks: To help contain your glitter take it and place it into inexpensive plastic containers. Sandwich ones are perfect. This will help you ensure that glitter isn't all of your work area and avoids having to put glitter back into the small containers.
