    Each of the above projects was embellishedusing art glitter products.

    The Art Glittering System

    You can adhere our Art Glitter and Vintage GlassGlitter to most surfaces with our adhesives.

    The Designer Dries Clear Adhesive adheres tomost surfaces, including but not limited to paper,cardboard, card stock, transparencies, glass,plastic, wood, metal, and ceramics. It can beapplied with the spout, metal tip or brushed onlarger areas (mix with a couple drops of water iftoo thick).

    Our Fabric Dries Clear Adhesive is specificallymade for use with our glitter on fabric. After theglue has dried completely, your fabric item thenmust be cured to make it washable. This is doneby heating the fabric in an oven. Refer to thedirections on our bottle for complete instructions.

    Note: Do not use Vintage Glass Glitter onfabrics as it is made with glass.

    At Art Glitter we use plastic containers to holdand catch our excess glitter. You can also use acreased piece of paper under your jar of glitter,or place your jar inside a basket filter. When donewith that color, pour glitter back into jar.

    Hold adhesive bottle in your hand like a pencil,touch spout tip or Ultrafine Metal Tip to surfacebefore squeezing bottle. Once tip is in place,carefully squeeze bottle and move spout or tipover area to achieve a controlled, accurate line.Our adhesives are three-dimensional, applyliberally for best results.

    Spoon glitter on adhesive while glue is wet, whiteand shiny. Turn project over tray/creased paperand tap backside with spoon to expel excessglitter before moving on to next color. Adhesivewill hold glitter, you do not have to wait for it todry before tapping excess off.

    Always put adhesive down in small, controlledareas, so glitter can be applied before adhesivebegins to dry. Depending on thickness of adhe-sive and climate, your area should dry in 10 to 30minutes.

    Green Jewelry

    This project involves usingrecycled products along with paints to create beautifuljewelry. The base of the jewelry is chipboard, or a pieceof cardboard (not corrugated.) You can use pre-cutchipboard pieces or cut your own or use both.

    1. Coat all pieces, front and back, with black acrylic paint.2. When dry, coat all pieces with a mixture of gold andcopper paints. Allow to dry. Gently rub a bit of the met-allic paint off most pieces to reveal a bit of the blackunderneath.3. Using the end of a small paintbrush, pound it over andover into the painted pieces to create the old workedmetal look.4. Using blue and green acrylic paints, dab a bit of eachcolor on some of the pieces to create a patina effect.5. Using needle nose pliers, separate pieces of old chains

    and connect them to individual piecesof jewelry with holes already piercedin them.6. Build a necklace and bracelet byputting pieces together as desired,connecting with rings and chainsections. Create earrings to match.

    Supplies: Sulky Fabri-SolvyTM Water Soluble Stabilizer:

    2 - 12" x 12" pieces 30 wt. SulkyTM Rayon Thread Sulky HoloshimmerTM Metallic Thread Sulky KK 2000TM Temporary Spray Adhesive 1 - 12" x 12" piece of Tulle

    (optional: 2 pieces - seenote at #4)

    Long Quilters Pins Free-motion, Spring-Loaded

    Foot 2 empty bobbins Schmetz 14/90 Topstitch,

    Metallic or Embroidery Needle Water Soluble Marker Vase Pattern General Sewing Supplies

    1. Wind a bobbin half full of each color to be used.(1 full bobbin, if only one color is used).2. Trace the vase pattern onto a 12" x 12" piece ofFabri-Solvy using the water soluble marker.3. Place the traced pattern onto a large piece of card-board or in a cardboard box (to protect your surfaces),and lightly spray the wrong side of the Fabri-Solvypattern with Sulky KK 2000. Place on a flat surface,sticky side up.4. Smooth a piece of the 12" X 12" Tulle onto thesprayed side of the Fabri-Solvy pattern. *Optional:If you want a confetti look to your lace, spray the tullewith KK 2000 again, and sprinkle tiny bits of choppedup fabric, ribbons, threads or yarns on top of the Tulleand lay another layer of Tulle over it.5. Again, place your square sandwich on the card-board, and spray the Tulle side with KK 2000 andsmooth a second square of Fabri-Solvy over it.6. Set machine for straight-stitch, free-motion work,by dropping or covering the feed dogs, and attachinga darning or free-motion (spring-loaded) foot.

    7. Start in the center of the sandwich and work to theoutside to reduce puckering.HINT: Be sure you dont fill-in the center of the de-sign, because this will be cut out later. Move the sand-wich in a fluid, circular motion forming small to mediumsize circles. Your circles should overlap slightly forstrength, but not be super filled in. You want a lightlacy effect.8. When stitching the sides, draw your circles so theycover or overlap the edge by 1/4 inch. After it is allfilled in, go around the outside and inside lines again.This reinforces the edge for the seam that will be sewn.9. Reset the machine for normal stitching. Raise thefeed dogs and attach the general purpose foot. Stitchlength is 2.0 to 2.5.11. Fold the lace in half, right sides together. Line upthe edges and pin together. With a 1/4" seam allowancesew a seam from the top, outside edge, down the vaseneck, and stop at the bottom. Do not sew the top orbottom closed. (I used a pin to remind me to stop sew-ing. Or, use a water soluble marker.)12. Sew the inside seam using a 1/4" seam allowanceon the traced line.13. Cut away the Tulle and stabilizer from outside thestitched lines. Dont forget to cut out the center too.14. Press the sandwich with a warm, dry iron to hastenthe dissipation of KK 2000. (If your iron does not havea non-stick surface, use a press cloth.) KK 2000 is notwater soluble, so you either
