I love this and own it in every color. I don't buy stick on pearls, gold balls, silver balls, red balls etc. any more. I use this instead and can make the dots any size I want.
I've also used it to decorate my shoes by dotting it on the toes and to decorate tote bags. Diluted with water and brushed on, it adds a pearlized finish to my ink, pencil or watercolor drawings.
It's the most wonderful stuff!
I'm not big on most metallic products since the colors are often so artificial. I've used expensive Golden acrylic paint for years since their range of metals is so bright and real -- the fact that they have actual beyond-ultra-fine metal in them makes a huge difference. BUT I'm not so good at wet paint and brushes, so I grump about it every time I need to use them.
I do like Stickles glitter glues for the convenience. So when I was trying to make a minimum order and I picked this Gold Pearls up.
It is what it is: a plastic metallic glue. It's a pretty cool one since the silky pearl effect is very much evident. What I like is that it doesn't glob or chunk, so it's possible to get a relatively smooth line of metallic. You do have to practice with it to apply the right pressure on the bottle, so don't go diving right in without a quick test first.
The color itself is not the bright plastic gold you find in a kid's tiara -- it is a bit more aged, and the darkest part of the sheen is almost a bronze without being antique. I think this is why people like Liquid Pearls so much. As a 3D line of glue it has character and is not a monotone.
I'm not over the moon but this is a nice product and does certain things very well like fake leading on large stained glass rubber stamps, and metal features on more cartoonish winter holiday images.
