Actually I have never liked glitter and think it may be toxic-it is so weightless that it is easy to ingest and it attached itself to fibers making it difficult to remove it from the air.
Instead I use glitter glue or shiny papers or metallic medium for the sparkle effect.

Apparently, the 1 lb of black glitter I ordered had busted open (which actually looked like it had exploded) and completely covered the box, and proceeded to spill out the corners leaving a glittery trail behind him. I am certain he will be finding it all over himself and the truck for months to come.
