DIY Glitter Painting
There are a few ways to achieve the look in your own country.
- To make your own glitter paint, add your favorite shine to PODGE mod or transparent glue. Use Two pieces of glitter on a piece of glue or PODGE mod. This will have a very thick consistency, so use a wide paintbrush instead of a roller to apply the mixture to the wall.
- If you just paint a wall, you can blow glow in the wet paint. This will create thick glitter stripes in areas rather than an even general luster effect.
- Use glue spray on the walls and blow glitter in the glued areas. This treatment is better for small areas. The use of glues requires a lot of ventilation, to keep the windows open or fans in which they are directed away from the walls where the brightness is being applied.

If the brightness is instantly on top, clean the wall with a clean roller or brush. Bristles or sponge collect larger parts of surface gloss and reduce glare.
