Craft Product Reviews: Mod Podge Dimensional Magic Specialty Formulas- Silver and Gold Glitter


I really love Mod Podge Dimensional Magic and use it frequently to add a glossy top coat to my projects. How excited was I to find out that there are now new formulations that have gold an silver glitter in the bottle? (Yes, I know you can just add it, but why not use it if they make it?) Let’s play, folks!

Here’s how it’s described on the website:

Create faux mosaic, quilt and other textures with added dimension. Dries to a glittery gold finish, letting you add extra pizazz to your projects. Works with Mod Podge, acrylic paint, dyes, pigments and more. Stay put formula won’t sag or run. Perfect for jewelry, paper crafting and accenting home décor items.
Size: 2 oz.
This version of MPDM comes in both gold and silver glitters. You will find that the glitter will be settled at the bottom.

Just so you know, both the silver and gold formulas have a holographic glitter, which means that you will get a “rainbow” of sparkles along with the silver and gold glitter.
Here’s some bottle caps I filled:

From left: Clear, silver, and gold. This is how it appears wet.

From left: Clear, silver, and gold. Dry.

Of course, I had to play with my favorite application of MPDM- as a glossy topcoat on embellishments.

Here I applied MPDM Silver Glitter on some punched snowflakes. They had been spritzed with Tattered Angels mists.

Now, because MPDM is a water-based product, if you mix it with OTHER water-based products it will “pull” the mists or inks up. As you can see in the photo above, the mists lifted into the MPDM when applied to the dried punched embellishment. Something to keep in mind if you don’t want bleeding to occur- but I think the effect is pretty cool. Here’s how it looked on a card.

In addition to the embellishments, there is a light coat of MPDM Glitter on the embossed and spritzed portion of the card.

Here I added a little bit of MPDM glitter formula on the embossed portion of the card. Just a bit of twinkle in the snowflakes.

Here I added the MPDM Sparkle on one of the layers. That pop of shine and sparkle really adds something to the design.

I love a bit of sparkle and shine, so I know that I will be using Mod Podge Dimensional Magic Gold and Silver Glitter formulas all through the holiday crafting season. Like I said, I know that you can just mix in your own glitter, but I appreciate one less step. (And if you are making Operation Write Home cards, where glitter is forbidden, this is a safe way of adding that glittery shine without risk of loose flakes everywhere.

It comes in a 2 oz bottle and has an MSRP of $6.99 USD. Will you be picking some up?
