|This glitter painting craft project was recently showcased at MarthaStewart.com, and is an easy project for memorializing your favorite pet. It’s also a great family project for you and your kids. Think of it as paint-by-numbers … with glitter.|
I’ve included a summary of the instructions below. Go to Martha’s Glitter Painting Site for complete instructions and an easy upload tool that will prepare your photo for glittering.
Tools and Materials
Upload and Prepare Photo
Using the photo-conversion tool, upload a picture and print it onto card stock using an ink-jet printer.
Prepare Glitter and Apply Glue
Apply craft glue from a fine-tipped bottle to a color field (it doesn’t matter where you begin). If the area is large, outline it first, then use the tip to fill in the space.
Remove Excess Glitter
Save Excess Glitter
Blow Away Stray Glitter and Finish Painting
Choose a satin ribbon that’s as wide as the panel is thick. Cut a length long enough to wrap around panel’s edge; affix it with paste-style glue.
