Create Your Own Glitter Palette

Pin It!

I've always had a thing for Stickles but when once I got my hands on the new Dry Stickles it went to a whole new level.  I created a video for you to show you just how easy it was to create my own custom color palette using the fabulous Distress Stickles Dry Glitter and Adirondack Alcohol Inks.  I am In LOVE~  
There are a few differences between the Distress Stickles Dry Glitter
 and the regular Stickles Dry Fine Glitter.
* Distress Glitter comes in just one color (clear Rock Candy) but don't let that stop you, with the help of my video tutorial you can create a multitude of colors for your projects. 
* Distress glitter has variegated glitter sizes
* Distress glitter has a beautiful shimmer without being overly sparkly
* Distress dry glitter comes in a large 60 gram jar 
* The Stickles Dry Fine Glitter is available in 24 colors
* Stickles Dry fine glitter comes in a 21.2gram jar with shaker top and screw off lid
* Stickles Dry fine glitter will add lots of beautiful sparkle and shine to your projects
One of my favorite things, as you will see in the video, is you can make several shades of the same color glitter!   The ones below I created in 3 shades of Eggplant by adding more or less of the Adirondack alcohol ink to each little container of Dry Distress Glitter.  The stripes were made by using Wonder Tape.  Love It!!!
 It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!!!
1. Scoop glitter into a smaller container
2. add a few drops of Alcohol Ink
3. Stir well and let dry!

Very nice! On my way to Hobby Lobby with my new "sister"! My son married a non-crafter but her mom is my new crafting buddy! How cool is that?
Got this on my shopping list. Thanks for posting.

thank you for showing me this!

I love this. The thought of making glitter to match your project is just fantastic.

Thank you for this tutorial!!!! It came at the perfect time as I am getting ready to make my Christmas cards and needed colored glitter, but couldn't find just the right color to match my paper. Now I will have it! You ROCK!!!

Gorgeous colors and great idea! So need to try this.

My question about this is: Is the colored glitter as sparkle-y as other pre-colored glitter. I ask because I purchased a pink sheet of glitter paper but really needed red so I sprayed it with some of my copic ink but the sparkle was really not sparkle-y anymore.

AWESOME IDEA! Thanks so much. I will be doing this too.

I've seen videos on glitters being made by salt. Is this a good idea? I was wondering, wouldn't the salt melt with paint or glue and how would it hold up?
