Good for accents only Mar 10, 2011

If you are getting just one set of glitter for a project, I wouldn't recommend this one. While these are absolutely gorgeous glitters in the bottle, when you apply them they are semi-transparent. The end result is that any variations of color on the surface of whatever you're glittering or brush strokes from the glue that show through the glitter. I found that these glitters are much more effective if you apply them over a layer of solid colored glitter as an accent. Used like this they create a nice iridescent shimmer.
If you are looking for a better basic set of glitter, this one may be a better place to start: Martha Stewart 24-Vial Glitter Multi-Pack

pretty colors Aug 31, 2010
By BOOK REVIEW
Absolutely gorgeous glitter, but good luck getting it to stay on paper with the MS glue or glue pad. Updated: the educational instructor from MS sent me a message saying that the glitter will stay on better if you set it with spray on glue. I've also heard other people say that hair spray works well too. I just don't want a tacky surface left behind that other pages could stick too, so these solutions aren't good ones for what I was hoping to use these for. I wouldn't recommend using this on paper craft projects. You are better off with embossing powder. Updated: I've searched around for more information on adhering glitter to paper and found a great You Tube tutorial by Hero Arts. The title is called "Glittered Lace Paper." I haven't tried this but the demo calls for using "Diamond Glaze" glue by Judy Kins, to the areas on your paper where you want to apply glitter, then sprinkle the glitter onto the surface of the glue, let dry, then brush away excess glitter. Repeat if desired. Lastly, cover glittered area with another coat of Diamond Glaze to insure that the glitter does not fall off the paper when it is handled.

Martha Stewart Crafts Iridescent Glitter, 12-Pack has beautiful colors but it wasn't for me. Apr 23, 2013
This glitter pack does not have it's own glue to accompany the glitter at the high price that was
paid. I had to pay another company to ship me some glue that was suppose to work with this
glitter. However, it did not work. The glitter wouldn't stick, no matter what I tried. They suggested
I buy yet another product to spray over the artwork to get it to stick.
I won't buy this product again. I wasted a lot of money.
