Question Krylon Glitter Spray - your thoughts if you've used it

I saw a really cool card on Pinterest where the cardmaker created a snowglobe by using a circle mask and sponging on the very inside of the mask (to make the globe); then she randomly stamped various snowflakes within the circle mask to make it look like it was snowing in snowglobe. The "base" of the snowglobe was just a 1.75 inch wide ribbon tied as a bow at the bottom of the circle. She used white ink.

I thought it would be cool to recreate the look (CASE) and step it up by adding shimmer. I don't have pearl-ex or any shimmer product and I'm not big on working with SU!'s Whisper White craft ink because it doesn't dry. Of course I can heat set the image, but I thought using a sealant or glitter spray might help things out a bit.

Perhaps I could spray a sealant (read: hairspray) over the card but I heard about the Krylon Glitter Spray and wondered if any SCS'ers here have worked with the product and could provide feedback for using it.

Is it truly a glitter spray? Does it provide any type of "sealant" over the stamped image? Does it smear? How sparkly is it on the cardstock used?

Thanks,
Kelli

I've used it on wooden letters. TBH I think it would spray too thick for the effect you want, of course this was the look I wanted so I didn't try to keep it light. This would be more like spraying your own glitter cardstock.

I would recommend a glitter mist like Tattered Angels, made for paper and goes on lighter than the Krylon sprays.

Isn't Tattered Angels similar to the spritzers that SU! used to sell? I've seen blog posts about that product and the feedback was a mixed bag. Anything you can spritz on sometimes sprays "splotchy".

I might still try the Krylon glitter spray, but put the item in a box and spray from several inches away, so as to not get that "heavy" look that RiverIsis was intentionally going for.

We'll see. I haven't even begun to create this card yet; just looking for feedback.

Thanks for replies

I sprayed in a box from about a foot away. It is a thick product.

I did use this for a Christmas card and it turned out nice, you do need to let dry completely before touching. I too sprayed into a box "spray booth".

Never tried the Krylon, but I can vouch for this Crafters Companion Iridescent Glitter spray. They also do a Multi colour one, but I haven't tried that one.
Here is a piece of Stampbord I stamped & inked, then sprayed with it.

It works fine on cardstock too- I used it on the Stampendous Snowy Postcard stamp I used this year, but the photo doesn't show it well, so not added that one.
Doesn't smear the ink, does seal it, the piece in the photo is now in use as a fridge magnet.

Just my 2 cents... I would think that the Krylon Glitter Blast in aerosol form would give you more even coverage than any of the water-based pump sprays, and wouldn't mess with your inks beneath. From the Blick site:

Glitter Blast contains no pigments, just glitter suspended in a clear coating that adheres to most surfaces, including plastic, Styrofoam, wood, metal, wicker, glass, ceramic, paper, and papier mâché. Because it's acid-free, Glitter Blast is ideal for scrapbooks, as well as invitations, gift tags, and more.


They also have a Clear Sealer for the Glitter Blast line.
