Master of Science in Glitter

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

My diploma says that I have a B.S. in Public Relations, but those of you that know me know that I have an unofficial minor in glitter.

Yes, glitter.

I’ve been studying the subject for about 24 years now…right after I stopped eating paste.

I’ve always considered myself an expert in the field of glitter - until Monday.

Browsing the aisles of Michael’s, I spotting a new glitter section. I’ve always known there were various shapes and sizes of glitter, but did you know they have official terms!?

Recollections at Michael's has defined the types of glitter as:

  • Fine
  • Extra Fine
  • Chunky
  • Microbeads
  • Tinsel
  • Extra Fine 
So when you are shopping for glitter, now you know that not all glitters are created equal! 

Oh and as my aisle shot shows, glitter isn't cheap. For large glitter projects, I recommend working with this foil glitter in a jar - which is found locally in Pittsburgh at Pat Catans. If you must go to Michael's, be sure to take a coupon!
