Homemade Extreme Glitter Paint (B-Bip © Glitter Paint)

I admit I am distracted by shiny objects in the Craft aisle and the PLAID Extreme Glitter Paint was no exception.  I bought four colors and love each and everyone of them.  I however wish there was more colors.  I don’t have a lot of glitter in my craft supply section actually I have only one little thing of fine glitter and it is a light pink.  I always save my old craft paint bottles because you never know when you will need them.  I decided to try and make my own Glitter Paint (I am calling it B-Bip © Glitter Paint).  I took some Liquitex Matte Medium, some light pink Fairy Dust glitter and mixed it together in my bottle.  I am a little disappointed in myself that I didn’t think of this before I bought the paint.  I will say I am excited about the fact I discovered it now because now I can make any color I want.

The other thing is you can use as much or as little glitter as you want.  With most of my experimentation – I guess, that is what I did with this.  I used maybe a 1/4 to a 1/2 of a 14 gms jar of Pink Diamond – JoAnn Craft Essentials Fairy Dust Glitter for a 2 fl oz container, poured in the Matte Medium and shook the bottle.  Very scientific indeed 🙂

I am quite pleased with the result:

Sorry about the quality of the picture, I can’t get my scanner hooked up to the MAC, so I had to take a picture.
