I'm not sure glitter is as infamous in Japan as it is stateside, but maybe the Yokkaichi petrochemical complex. It is famous for its lights.

Does your craft room now look like you spent a week in the dives of Las Vegas?...
Or could you say it looks like the lights of downtown Tokyo at night? ;)

Oy, I passed on these and now I'm glad I did. Glitter is the herpes of crafts.

I told my daughter she was welcome to play with her toys in our dungeons - My Little Pony, Littlest Pet Shop, etc. - but no pieces with glitter. Somehow I still occasionally find a little reflective green speck stuck to a door here and there. With these... I can't bear to think of it.

Thanks for the post, I will reference it if I decide to paint my walls.

I wanted to share what I did since everyone will encounter the same issues. My steps were as follows....

1. Blow / dust off excess glitter that will fall off easily.
2. Apply glitter glue to desired coverage (let dry).
3. Apply gloss finish to seal glitter and provide protection.
4. Enjoy playing with your walls of force.

The glue I used is below from Walmart, this type of glue definitely help hold the glitter in place ($1.50)

So far the best gloss coating I have found is this....
Image

I applied a different amount of glitter density to each wall....
Image

You can measure glitter density by placing the wall against any white backdrop and tilting it until you can see the density best...
Image

The judge your final product...
Image

I also applied glitter glue to the tops and sides for a full effect...

Hope someone may have found this useful =)

No kidding. I've seen impressive walls of paint, but rarely such impressive walls of craft supplies.
:D

I am rather anti-glitter. The stuff gets everywhere and can actually injure if it gets in eyes. The only glitter I use in my projects is the glitter hot glue sticks for making treasure piles. I will either simple green and scrub it away or seal the heck out of it.
I understand your frustration with Glitter. If you don't attach it well it will shed like flocking.50% white glue and water is best for both. You will need to seal it with clear coat too.

There are many ways to get changed.

For instance you can change £1 into 2 50 pence coins or 5 20 pence coins or 10 10pence coins or 20 5 pence coins ....... well you get the gist

For all you foreigners just change £ and pence to whatever foreign coinage you use. We assume in Japan its many yen and not so many yen ;)

You can get changed into a nice red and white Gingham dress.

You have already changed into a Minotaur Lord.

Some many changes so many ways.

We have changed from a grumbling old Welsh wargamer living in England to the spokes rabbit for the Mythrassian Lagomorph Bunny Hive mind with a dubious sense of humour ..... who'd have thought?
