Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Glitter

Here’s another winner in the deep product line from Tim Holtz and Ranger Industries, which is always well thought out with perfectly matching colors and attractive packaging.

Distress Glitter comes in 24 different colors and coordinates with the nostalgic palette of other Distress products . Somewhere between a fine glitter and a glass glitter, the blend is best described as a vintage mica creating a unique glitter product. MSRP is $5.49, in my opinion a good value for a quality product that will last you quite a long time!

Apply this glitter with a wet adhesive such as glossy accents, with gel medium, or you can even use tacky glue like I did on the edges of the flower above. The wet adhesive allows the Distress Glitter to stand up and attach the the adhesive at different angles giving the sparkle even more interest.

I’m a little impatient and really appreciated that this glitter can be heated to dry the glue faster and the glitter did not melt or fly off.

And here’s a bonus feature – Distress Glitter is inkable! It’s amazing… just add a little contrasting Distress Ink with a blending tool and you’ll achieve some beautiful shading.

This glitter doesn’t disappoint… give it a try, you’ll love it just like I do!
