Glass Bead Glitter Gel with Rita!


 Hey there artsy friends Rita Barakat here today! Surely by now you have tried  Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Glass Bead Glass Bead Glitter Gel? Well if not lets take a closer look shall we?   When the Glass Bead Glitter Gel is dry, it has little glass beads in it that reflect the light. When it is dry it is clear so you can still see whatever design is underneath.

july 2014 024100 This is how it looks wet, I spread it with an old plastic card. You may be tempted to use your heat gun to speed up the process, don't do it! It dries best by itself. When you use heat you might get bubbling and some of it turns white, it looks so much better if you just let it dry by itself.  Drying time depends on how thick it was applied, it can easily take hours but it is worth the wait! july 2014 023100 Note - I use a spatula, but whatever you tool you use to spread the Glass Bead Glitter Gel make sure you wipe it clean right away! This stuff dries rock hard and super strong! july 2014 020100 You can use the Glass Bead Glitter Gel on top of anything! Here I used it on chipboard, over two layers of Gelatos® Double Scoops®! I hope you go try this, I just know you will love it! Gorgeous!

As soon as I get my hands on some, I will most definitely use it.


I need a tub of that in my life. Well, more precisely, I need everything Faber Castell/Design Memory Craft has in my life. :) As always, Rita, your creation is beautiful!

You can NEVER have too much SPARKLE & SHINE, so I think that this had better come in HUGE tubs :)
Added Glass Bead Glitter Gel to my long Design Memory Craft WISH LIST, it's in equal top position with Whipped Spackle, closely followed by a pretty awesome rainbow of Gelatos!!!
THANK YOU for sharing this with us today Rita!!!
