Default What do you use to add sparkle to small spaces?

I recently was able to visit an actual brick and mortar stamping and scrapbook store. They had loads of samples to look at, and I realized after I left that many of my favorites featured small accents of irridescent glitter. I'm interested in what you use to add glitter over the top of Copic or Prismacolor coloring. What's your favorite product?

For me that would be the clear Wink of Stella, because it does not rub off.

Wink of Stella or embossing pen (like Versamarker) with sparkly clear or iridescent embossing powders.

Same here. Wink of Stella. And if you want a little dimension, you can add clear glaze over that (like clear Nuvo drops). It looks amazing!

wink of stella
stickles has several iridescents-some lean to the blues and some to oranges/warmer you can smooth it to be flatter or pile it for height
gelli roll gel pen for fine lines

Some inks now have a fine glitter aspect to it. I think it is Hero?
There are sprays like pixie dust and others for full card coverage

Got a thing about that bling! Sometimes, I don't think I am getting enough of it from Wink of Stella pens. Here is a sample page of some other glitter, gloss glaze, and iridescence mediums. I don't think it has any pens; most of these are in small containers. Sorry, the scan image quality doesn't look good, but perhaps you might want to look further into one of them. (I think Sparkle Silk is sold under a different brand now.)

Another vote for the Clear Star Gel pen. Makes fine lines, but can also cover larger areas. For dimension in small areas I go with Stickles.

i like the AquaFlow pens from Nuvo - in Shimmer. It is mixed with water though, so i use lightly but it really gives a ton of shine.

I love the Sakura Stardust gel pen. But I also use the Quickie Glue Pen with fine glitter as well - be sure to press the glitter into the glue as that makes it less likely to come off.

I found a jar of Masters Touch Opal Glitter medium (Hobby Lobby) in my supplies never opened!
I've used it to embellish digi prints and die cuts. I really like the results. It's clear with fine opalescent glitter that sparkles, looks beautiful on wings and more. I apply it to the area with a small angle or round paint brush depending on the image.
They also have it in gold which I'll invest in next time it's on sale.
In addition, I use Masters Touch metallic watercolors which come in a set of 24.

in a pinch, I have also used clear nail polish, and even the Dollar Tree nail polish that has sparkles in it.

I love the look you get with this! I'll have to keep an eye out for it and in the mean time try out some of my other gel mediums that have glitter, though they seem much chunkier.

I use both the Wink of Stella, and the Jelly Roll Stardust pens. If I need really tiny controlled stroke accents I use my Stickles on a silicone mat, and a really tiny paint brush to make a swath (like up a flower petal). Easier to control how much Stickles that way, than doing the Stickles drop directly on the art work. Love them all!
