I am willing to give loose glitter another try but I have a few questions.

1. I will be using it on die cuts made from my Cameo and Expression. How do you apply it? Including adhesive, and exactly how you apply it step by step.

2. Do you seal it? If so with what and when? How long does it take to dry?

3. Does the glitter flake off?

Thanks for the help,
Candie

OK - the Doodlebug glitter really only works with their own adhesive. I have them and they are gorgeous but normal glue didn't hold it even when I sealed it with a thick layer.

Maybe that is my problem with all my Doodlebug glitters?! LOL

I seal most loos glitter with glossy mod podge after it dries. Sometimes, I don't seal it. I live on the edge.

Do you wait and seal it after it dries or right away?

I actually just run my die cuts through a Xyron, and I never seal it. Seems to work great for me.

Do you run them through the zyron before and after the glitter?

Thanks,
Candie

I run the die cut through the Xyron to get even distribution of adhesive, sprinkle the glitter on and tap off the excess and I have never had a problem.

Good luck!

This is the adhesive I was told to get to use with the Doodlebug glitters mentioned, I have never had a problem using it. I see it is discontinued here tho. Art Institute Glitter - Designer Adhesive - Glitter and Art Glue - Dries Clear

I put the die cut upside down so the sticky is on top when you take it out.

I have run mine through the xyron before but most of the time I use my Jelly Roll glue pen by Sakura even for big ones. It is much cheaper too. I just do it in small sections. Then it is much easier. I never seal them. I never have anything fall off. When I make them, I do use a big brush that I got from SU. I think they call it a daubber. You can get them elsewhere in the art section. I gently brush excess glitter off while making it & at the end. I never have had any glitter fall off my page in the bottom of my page protectors. Most of my friends in a huge scrap club never seal either.
On my Cinderella castle page. I used a large image from a coloring book. I did not seal it. I used the little Sakura jelly roll glue pen on it. I think I have seen people post about the Doodlebug glitter maybe being thicker or chunkier. I have only used fine scrapbook glitter or glitter from the t shirt decorating supplies but not Doodlebug.

I tried glitter for the first time a few days ago. I used a glue stamp pad and then applied the glitter. It didn't want to stay so I used spray adhesive over it and that worked.

Spray adhesive OVER it??? Didn't that just leave the surface all sticky?

Not once it dries (which is pretty quick with a good spray). However it does tend to dull the finish of the glitter, ime. Good for adding additional layers, though, I did this on the styrofoam star base for my Glinda wand.

Good to know.
I dressed as Glenda, Halloween before last. One of the most fun costumes to put together.

The tried to keep the spray just in the glitter area, seemed to work, not sticky.

Word of the wise.. use Modge podge & seal that puppy.. with the modge podge & a paint sponge.. Seriously.. saves a lotta time & glitter everywhere.. I will not do it any other way, I learned the way hard way..

Linda, you said it so well.


I have used glitter once and I did what loveforscrappin said but I even used the mod podge as the initial adhesive.
