German Glass Glitter, German Glass Glitter…I must have said those three words fifty times at our BEACH GLASS holiday event last week! It’s funny how words come in and out of your life. Right now it’s “NO!” (due to Allie our new puppy) and “German Glass Glitter” because of all of the gorgeous sparkle currently at the shop.
What is German Glass Glitter? Well, it isn’t your finely shredded tinsel my friends! Y’know… the kind that sticks to your face for several days forcing you to defend exactly how you are spending your spare time? German glass glitter is actually crushed glass that give the most beautiful reflective sparkle. Silver coated with actual silver, German glass glitter ages over time to a beautifully aged patina. I can’t get enough of the stuff! Armed with an old paint or sponge brush and some good old fashioned Elmer’s glue, nothing is off limits!
Here are some examples currently at BEACH GLASS by K.Miller Interiors, and why I will continue to say “German Glass Glitter” throughout this holiday season.
Pinecones are one of my favorites…
Just about anything wood, the B & G on our BEACH GLASS Christmas tree are made from MDF and boy do they shine!
The gorgeous reindeer, twig star garlands, and gift boxes are all hand crafted from Sherri’s Designs using german glass glitter and mica flakes.
By now you have read “German Glass Glitter” more times than you thought you ever would, so you are probably asking, where can I get my hands on this glittery goodness?
No fret my friends, I have bottled some magic just for you! I blended my favorite fine and course grit glitters to create the perfect blend for just about any project. Fine enough to get the coverage you need, but enough of the chunky stuff for that extra sparkle!
Come on in and get your hands on some while it lasts!
