Plaid is introducing new Extreme Glitter paints in; Aqua, Confetti, Royal Blue, Champagne and Fuchsia. I’m excited to help introduce the new products by giving away a starter set.

If you’ve ever crafted with glitter, you know what a mess it can be. Glitter everywhere! With these paints, there’s no mess.

I tested out the paints on a few projects from my archives. Here are some of my pressed flower tags jazzed up with Royal Blue Extreme Glitter paint.

My white parchment paper flower with Champagne Extreme Glitter paint.

Skeleton Leaves take on a whole new look with the glitter paint.

The paints are easy to use and clean up is a breeze.

  16. You had me at extreme glitter :) I'm already a follower. I would most likely use them to accent anything I'm not skilled enough to use a glitter/glue combo on (more things than I'd like to admit!) and probably any random thing I think needs sparkle...

  19. I'm a follower! I love glitter, but hate the mess - and I always make a mess! I have some hummingbird ornaments that were outside decorations, and when my parents decided to take them down they gave them to me. I decided to decorate them with glitter, but I only got one of them done. It was beautiful, but it took forever just to clean up the mess after each color of glitter was applied. I would love to use this paint on the other ornaments, not to mention tons of other projects!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. I Tweted over, and ooho how exciting. I'll be painting decorations for all times of the year. The county building where our 4-H activities are held will not allow glitter. Now we can have the sparkle and ambiance without the mess. We'll start with some pumpkin highlights in Champagne and confetti. The fuchsia and aqua are screaming to be applied to our wooden butterfly cut outs for mobiles, hung by the blue and Champagne sky and clouds. olebat@gmail.com
