Micro glitters
« on: 02/19/21 08:42 UTC »
....darned hard to find in colors other than silver. Yesterday I found a bottle of a fuscia glitter that's about like coarse dust and made of glass. Of course it came home with me. $.50. Its actually sort of a two color glitter that flashes from fuscia to a blue. Nifty looking stuff in the jar. I have some mixed up in transparent purple powder paint along with a color shift pigment called "flare" that rockets from red to pink to purple to orange to gold when applied over black so I'm hopeful that the purple will be deep enough to get some interaction.



The fine glitters Do-It sells with the powder paints in 1 ounce jars works well for all of my needs but anything super-fine just pulls me in. Like this fuscia/blue. I can see this getting mixed with a little of the excess oil in separated colorant and used as a dot on a belly section to create a line using clear plastic.

I am going to post a link below for you, Tom.  This is one of the main websites that I buy unique pearls from but they also offer some very small flake options I think you will be interested in.

Can't wait to see what you come up with next.  I have been using some .008 and I still want to try some of the .004 but it seems a little difficult to find.  I do see that  mf has some so I might try some of what they have.

I didn't see where the size glitter was mentioned... Fine is generally bigger than .008

I wish the goofy names had a better decription of color.. Other than "Color shift" etc.

If you can, Find out glitter size... i'm ready to buy.

I dont know the size but it almost powder form.
