The Art Glittering System
You can adhere our Art Glitter and Vintage Glass Glitter to most surfaces with our adhesives.
The Designer Dries Clear Adhesive adheres to most surfaces, including but not limited to paper, cardboard, card stock, transparencies, glass, plastic, wood, metal, and ceramics. It can be applied with the spout, metal tip or brushed on larger areas (mix with a couple drops of water if too thick).
Our Fabric Dries Clear Adhesive is specifically made for use with our glitter on fabric. After the glue has dried completely, your fabric item then must be cured to make it washable. This is done by heating the fabric in an oven. Refer to the directions on our bottle for complete instructions. Note: Do not use Vintage Glass Glitter on fabrics as it is made with glass.
At Art Glitter we use plastic containers to hold and catch our excess glitter. You can also use a creased piece of paper under your jar of glitter, or place your jar inside a basket filter. When done with that color, pour glitter back into jar.
Hold adhesive bottle in your hand like a pencil, touch spout tip or Ultrafine Metal Tip to surface before squeezing bottle. Once tip is in place, carefully squeeze bottle and move spout or tip over area to achieve a controlled, accurate line. Our adhesives are three-dimensional, apply liberally for best results.
Spoon glitter on adhesive while glue is wet, white and shiny. Turn project over tray/creased paper and tap backside with spoon to expel excess glitter before moving onto next color. Adhesive will hold glitter, you do not have to wait for it to dry before tapping excess off.
Always put adhesive down in small, controlled areas, so glitter can be applied before adhesive begins to dry. Depending on thickness of adhesive and climate, your area should dry in 10 to 30 minutes.
