Mardi Gras Glitter

art ExtraVagance finnabair mardi gras glitter -- now that's a mouthful to say!!! But, boy o boy, is this ever amazing glitter.

First off, the colors are what I would expect to see at Mardi Gras -- greens (3 shades, 2 textures), pinks (2shades, one of each texture), and one amazing purple in the ultra fine glitter. Second the textures are ultra fine and regular, both have sparkle, sparkle, reflective properties that just radiate the light. And third, my all time favorite thing about this glitter is -- it has it's own sprinkle top!!! Yeah!!! A flip-up top that has tiny holes to sprinkle on just what you need with very litttle waste. And the added bonus of those tops is precision!!! Yes, precision!!! They dispense a fine little "shake" of the glitter that pretty much goes exactly where you want it to go. How cool is that!!!

Here are some sample boards I made. The top one is just some of the shades sprinkled onto double-sided tape that was adhered to a twinchy board. On the middle two boards, I used a stencil to control where I sprinkled the different colors. When I removed the stencil, I sprinkled the lighter shade of pink onto the left one, and I used a white I already had for the other one.

On the bottom two, I used the same stencil, but used all the leftovers from the above 3 twinchy boards that had fallen off after burnishing them. I added white glitter to complete the tiny boards and cover the stickiness of the double-sided tape. I love how all the colors mixed to give this unique blend!!!

I also shot a quick video because it is very difficult to show glitter in a still photo. I recorded outside hoping  to get the colors as true as possible, so apologies for the "airiness" of the sound. Plus you get the added bonus of seeing my little dog in the back ground!!

  1. wow - what a great review...I wonder if we can link this post as a review to the product. I need to hire you to do reviews of the products!!! LOL

    1. LOL!!! I would do a much better job if I was actually doing a review.... I'd talk about the glitter size, which we all know how important size is, and a very descriptive review of the different colors of green and pink, and then that true royal purple... this was fun to play with and I am not covered in glitter either. Although there is nothing wrong with that!!!

  2. That is sooooo gor-jussssss and you done a fantastic job reviewing them. I love it! hugs, Patty

  3. Wow, that is very sparkly! Good that you made the video because the photos don't do it justice!
