I too have been banned from glittering, but I still do and I'm gonna do this! Thanks for the clear instructions!
I always try to vacuum up all the stray glitter before my husband gets home, he still catches me sometimes though :)
My college-aged children have taught me a more scientific name for glitter--art herpes, once you've got it, you can't get rid of it.
Love it! I just bought a bunch of glitter to try this....hopefully I don't get banned from it after....
I think I only got banned from being a repeat offender, and I'm messy!
Mine are not turning out very good. When I brush over glitter with a thin layer of silicone, alot of glitter is coming off and now you can 'see through' in some spots. Any suggestions?
That's never happened to me before. A little bit of glitter comes up when I brush the second layer of silicone, but it's definitely not see through. I would probably re-dip in the glitter and let it dry again. When you are pressing the marble into the glitter, is it squishing a little into the silicone? Maybe a thicker layer of silicone? I'm sorry you are having difficulties :(
Can you you use modpoge(sp?) instead of silicone?
E6000 has the nastiest, lasting smell. Is there a way to get rid of it?
Silicone from the hardware store my have a milder odor. I have used it recently to seal around my sink and didn't notice any smell, but that doesn't necessarily mean it didn't smell. After painting and printmaking for so many years, I just don't notice anymore.
I have 3 girls ages 7, 8 and 11. I can blame the glitter mess on them ;) Great tutorial! Thanks!
I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to make craft projects with me, and she will probably get blamed for the messes too (sorry sweetie!)
My husband is such an amazing man. I am obsessed with glitterand we have 4 daughters. Healmost always has glitter in his hair or stuck to him somewhere. He rocks it lol. He says its his badge of being a daddy to daughters.

I LOVE, LOVE this idea. I just started crafting at 58 with my granddaughter and I am the glitter grandmother! My husband laughs as he finds glitter everywhere. . . truck, work, briefcase, on his clothes! Glitter Rocks!
Can you repost the tutorial?! I would love to know how to make these
I fixed the link above to the tutorial in my new blog, it should work now!
