Tips from under the home improvement pile (an oldie but goodie from 2008, reposted)
While shopping for paint, I noticed a Glitter Glaze made by Benjamin Moore. So girly. I knew it had to use it in my little girls’ bedroom.
The girls’ room is designed with a pink stripe and this paint is perfect to add a little sparkle!
It was so easy to work with. I couldn’t believe it. The glaze was a thin white color, sprinkled with glitter. It went on very smoothly with a roller. The white dries clear, leaving a layer of glitter.
Having worked with magnetic paint in the past, I was thrilled that this paint was so easy to work with!
I rolled it over the pink stripe around the room. The glittery effect was achieved after two coats of glaze. I think more than two coats would certainly provide more glitter, yet this amount keeps it sparkly in the regular lighting of a room and less noticeable in dimmer lighting.
It was a difficult effect to capture on photo, but here is the best one. The iridescent look is not the flash, but the glitter:
I definitely liked the way it made the pink sparkle.
I would love to see it over a much darker color.
This paint was an painless way to bring a little sparkle to a room. I highly recommend it!
