I am a craft & art supply addict and had purchased the standard shiny Stickles awhile ago. However, I never really used them because they were a bit toooo bright and shiny for my taste. The Distress Stickles are fabulous because they give a little sparkle without being obnoxious and the colors are more muted so then enhance rather than overshadow what is underneath.
Good bye glitter glue that takes forever to dry and does not work well.
I don't know what I did without this product before. Remember, there are two kinds of stickles. One is regular that is used like glitter glue and the other one is distress stickles that can be embossed. I like both products.
