FolkArt Extreme Glitter Giveaway!

I'll admit it.  I have a love-hate relationship with glitter.  I love the way it looks on my craft projects.  I love how it glams up anything.  But I hate that it gets EVERYWHERE.  Seriously, me, my husband, and my daughter always end up with glitter bits all over us whenever I do a simple little project.  Heck,  even my late dog sparkled when I was doing a glitter project.  Did I mention I also almost always get in my eyes?  I've taken to wearing safety googles when I craft with it.

When I first heard about Plaid's Extreme Glitter paint, I thought it was a paint with glitter in it.  But it's more like a translucent base with bits of glitter floating in it.  You paint it on and when it dries you have a perfectly glittered piece without the mess of glitter.  And the glitter stays put.  No flecking off and continually making a mess.  To try it out, I painted a craft paper mache with some FolkArt Metallic paint and then coated it with the Silver Extreme Glitter paint.  I think these close-up shots really show you the glitter effect you can get from the product (and also my messy painted flowers!).  I think my little show pony is perfectly glittered nonetheless and I know a little girl who can't wait to get her hands on it.  And my eyes?  Safe and glitter free!
