Craft Product Review: Mod Podge GLITTER!


Um, OK. So in the past few days I’ve shared my unabashed love for Mod Podge (satin and glossy), shared my new appreciation for Mod Podge Shimmer and now….buckle your seat belt…there’s GLITTER MP, too!

It has a lot in common with it’s other Mod Podge bretheren. Just to recap:

  • It’s a glue, a finish, and a sealer
  • It has a mild, distinctive odor.
  • Has a tendency to show brushmarks. (Use a sponge-type brush to help this.)
  • Has the viscosity of honey.
  • Can be tacky to the touch when it dries. (But a quick coat of clear acrylic spray remedies this.)
  • Non-toxic, safe for the kids.
  • Works on any porous surface- paper, wood, cardboard, chipboard, fabric, cork, and more!
  • Starts off opaque, but dries clear.

I’m guessing I don’t even need to TELL you how great it is to have the glitter built right into Mod Podge- it eliminates a whole step! And the more layers you put on, the greater the glitter-factor. Check out this video to see how it looks on different papers:

Good stuff!! I think Mod Podge Glitter is a MUST for the winter holidays- it’ll be so great for decoupaged ornaments, accents on scrapbook pages, and more! Here’s a wooden star I painted with one coat of Gesso and TWO coats of Glitter MP….

Glitter is predominantly Gold with some rainbow colors mixed in.

    I’d love to add some glitter to some Halloween decorations – like some mini pumpkins I bought at the thrift shop. And then on to Christmas cards, and, oh, some ornaments, and….

  2. Dana Says:

    I have been looking all over for the Glitter version! I can’t seem to find it at any of the stores (though of course I haven’t asked anyone for help…) Again, this glitter version would be great for Christmas decorations that I can’t wait to start crafting!

  3. Lindy Says:

    Love your wooden star…..I actually have one at home didn’t know what to do with it. The MP glitter will be perfect….LOL. Thanks for the idea and inspiration.

  4. Kathy Says:

    I would definitely use Glitter MP for Christmas decor. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Glitter MP in the store. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Glenda Hart Says:

    This new Mod Podge product is so great. I would use this on everything. Think of the WOW factor this would add. the possibilities are endless.

  6. Kory Says:

    I would use it to start making my tags for Christmas presents. I like to make Christmas morning magical for adults and kids on my list and how I do it is by handcrafting my tags and wrapping paper. It makes everything feel so much more special.

  7. Susan Spiers Says:

    Since the glitter relects light, the silver glitter would be perfect to paint the candles I place amongst the white boas(snow)that I place on my mantle! The other XMAS lights would pick up & reflect the candles for a very bright snowy look.

  8. Stacie Says:

    This would be great on all sorts of holiday decorations! Christmas, Independence Day, Halloween…

  9. Arathi Prakash Says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I would use the glitter MP for making a photo frame! :)

  10. Angela Says:

    I love glitter but hate the mess it can make. This looks like just the thing I’ve been missing. I’m thinking a light coat of glitter MP on some domino pendants, or bracelets.

    Thanks again for the great reviews this week, I’m really enjoying them!

  11. Teresa Says:

    What a wonderful giveaway! They would be perfect for glam-ing up my holiday decor! Love that they make it easier and quicker to glitter!

  12. Aurora Says:

    I’d like to try it on some beautiful fall leaves for a table scape or mail art!

  13. Kristi Says:

    I love the fact that the glitter is built in, less time waiting for it to dry!

  14. Saige Says:

    Wow, that is pretty! I love the way it just shimmers. I think I’d like to try making my daughter some ruby slippers or some sparkly princess shoes. It’s just so pretty, I’m sure I’d find all kinds of things to do with it!

  15. Noreen Says:

    I’d LOVE to get some Mod Podge Glitter. The only thing our sole craft store carries is the regular Mod Podge. I’m Mod Podging wrapping paper to some boxes to make them into permanent gift boxes, and I would love to glitter them up with the Mod Podge Glitter. I won’t use regular glitter because it would always be flaking off.

  16. Karen Lopez Says:

    I think this one will be my favorite but I cannot wait to try them all.. I am anxious to do Halloween decorations!!!
    Thanks for sharing this great video!!!

  17. Vicki Malave Says:

    Oh how fun! I think I’m going to have to make some Christmas ornaments with this stuff!

  18. Kelly Massman Says:

    Awesome stuff! I know I would use it on embellies (flowers) maybe ornaments etc. Thanks! :-)

  19. Melody Nunez Says:

    Ooh! I’d love to use this glitter Mod Podge to seal fabric ornaments and give them a little sparkle…

  20. Elizabeth Lafferty Says:

    Neat! Thanks for the review! I can see SO many uses for this already – coating the inside of clear glass ornaments maybe?

  21. Betsy J Says:

    w00t,Mod Podge! I am addicted :)

    I too, have been searching for the mythical glitter type, so I would indeed be quite please to win some!

  22. tom sale Says:

    I would paint it over my skeleton watercolors!

  23. Marsha Says:

    Love it!!!

  24. Mary Close Says:

    I would like to try Glitter MP on melted record bowls made from Christmas records. A layer on a Christmas record would surely add a little more festivity! I like the idea of using it for ornaments too, and I’m pretty sure I could figure out a way to use it on wreaths and arrangements…

  25. slammie Says:

    Fun giveaway! Would like to try making some Christmas ornaments with the kids.

  26. Shaunery Says:

    It’s sweet! I have MP Glitter in Hologram Silver and it rocks! I haven’t found the gold here yet, and would love to add to my arsenal of MP products!! The folks at Plaid are geniuses!

  27. rossane kasem Says:

    i luv this glitter MP – i do day of the dead shrines and this is the best way to glitter up my shrines without all the glitter flakes getting all over my work space.. :) mod podge rocks

  28. Carrie T Says:

    Would love to use on fall and christmas decorations! :)

  29. Melissa Ziggy Cook Says:

    Love it! I have some ornaments I can use it on or some other gifts to make for my friends. Some might just end up on some shoes 😉

  30. Erika Seever Says:

    This stuff is awesome. I’d glitterize christmas ornaments I’m making. Thanks for the chance.

  31. Amanda Says:

    I still have not tried this version of modge podge. Each year my kids make Christmas ornaments for all the family and close friends. I have not decided what they are making this year but glitter modge podge would def come in handy. I would love to try it out.

  32. Barbara Moore Says:

    I would use it on some of my gourd art! I’d love to win it!

  33. Renee J. Says:

    This is pretty amazing. I can’t believe all that Mod Podge is coming up with. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  34. Kathy Says:

    Now everyone know that glitter makes most gals happy. I am not too fond of glitter but all my scrappy friends would love for me to win. I would be so happy to regift the prize. Mod Podge rules!

  35. Jodi Says:

    I love sparkles and I would use it everywhere…scrappy pages, altered art, home decor!! What a great way to doctor up some embellishments! My instant thought is …a secret, I want to try it before I share! :)

  36. jules p Says:

    What wouldn’t I put MP glitter on?!??!(should be the question) 😉

    But since you are asking….I would love to put it on some old Christmas ornaments I have (that were my grandmother’s). Just to spruce them up a bit. Plus, I absolutely LOVE sparkly things. I could put it on my Thanksgiving topiary-if I win!~

  37. Jennifer Says:

    Sparkles! I love Sparkles!!! I have like 5 different craft projects going right now, Mod podge Sparkles would do wonders for them! My daughter would love it too!!! SPARKLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =)

  38. Mari Says:

    I would use it on Christmas decorations!

  39. shelly rae wood Says:

    Hmmm…..such a fun product. I think I would most want to add it too my husband’s hair while he is sleeping…..then he would be thinking about me ALL day!! :) He usually has glitter on him anyway……everyone is my house does, even the cats. This way it would last longer!! :::Smiles:::

  40. Mina Says:

    Yay glitter!!! I’d use this on lots and lots of projects! First thing that comes to mind is a glittery frame for a mirror, then some Halloween or Christmas ornaments.

  41. Jessie Says:

    I recently took a pair of plain flats and Mod Podged them with fabric. I plan on wearing them for my wedding! I want to add something extra special to them to fancy them up a bit, though, and I think a coat or two of Mod Podge Glitter would be just the thing!

  42. Amber F. Says:

    This would be another great one for Christmas ornaments, or cards, or any other decorations. I also think it would work great for ceramic tile coasters.

  43. Rebecca Says:

    I would use this on ANY of my Christmas decorations I make this year!

  44. Melanie K Says:

    I like to make a few Christmas decorations each year, so definitely on those … and I really like that star with it on it!

  45. Linh C Says:

    YAY, no more loose glitter ALL over the car and house! I’d give some to the pre-school teachers to use with their holiday projects so that I won’t have to cringe when my children come home with their projects!

  46. susie carranza Says:

    haven’t used this yet, the possibilities are endless…jewelry, notecards, canvas work…

  47. Nikki Says:

    I love the idea of decoupaged ornaments. I’d definitely have to try those.

  48. Kristib Says:

    Did you notice a big difference between glitter and shimmer? I thought they turned out about the same (I was hoping for more gold), but maybe I just didn’t apply enough. Regardless, I’m a girl who loves glitter AND shimmer, so it’s a win either way!

  49. Stefanie Says:

    It would be fun to try the glitter on the magic wands I make/ sell. I already use shimmer on them and like it, but it would be interesting to see the difference!

  50. Mandie W Says:

    I’m already thinking up a sparkly Christmas project…. a nice wall hanging perhaps? I also think this would be cool on a picture frame….

  51. Naomi Says:

    I would love to try this on Christmas projects!

  52. Jenny Says:

    HUGE difference! “Shimmer” is like fine mica particles- “Glitter” is definitely GLITTER!!! I love them both, but for different applications.

  53. Shoni Says:

    I would use the glitter MP for this year’s family ornaments.

    Each year, I craft an ornament for each member of my family with their name and the year to remember the holidays and our celebrations.

    Thank you for the opportunity!

  54. Kim Kiehl Says:

    Every year I give my 5 kids ornaments with the year on. Someday I picture giving them a box filled with their ornaments when they have their first tree. Some years I buy them, some years I make them. This sounds like it would be the perfect topper to handmade ornaments this year.

  55. Ada Says:

    Are you kidding?
    What won’t I use it on?

    Haaa haa.

    I double love it.

  56. Steph Says:

    I’d use it on christmas cards!

  57. Elaine C. Says:

    I enjoyed the test swatch video for the comparisons – thanks! I’d use the glitter mp on snowflakes & hang in my window for Christmas

  58. Heaney Says:

    love this glitter glue for my Christmas ornaments craft.

  59. Estee Says:

    I didn’t quite get the difference between the glitter and the shimmer… I need to take a good look. But they look great and I’d love to use them :)

  60. Alexandra Says:

    Ohh, I’d love to give this a try, glitter is always good!
    Love, Alex

  61. beulahmom Says:

    I’d love to use this to glam up my paper flowers. Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway!

  62. Lisa Says:

    I’m making black Moravian stars for Halloween decorations; I usually dip them in parafin, but I’ve been thinking Mod Podge instead. Glitter would be fun!

  63. KarenB Says:

    Thanks so much for the review – I haven’t tried this one yet and you’ve convinced me to give it a try 😀

  64. Tanya P. Says:

    Wow, love this. I would use it for my upcoming Christmas projects, how awesome with the glitter :)

  65. Lisa Says:

    I’d use it to make holiday decor, which I give as gifts! Also, it would be great for an initial sign for my daughter’s room!

  66. Laura Rogers Says:

    I am looking forward to using Mod Podge glimmer for some Fall crafts! Can’t wait!

  67. Danielle Says:

    Does anyone know if you can use mod podge on glitter and/or raised paper?

  68. Jenny Says:

    Sure you can! I use it on embossed paper. But you would be well-off being generous and/or spritzing the paper with water first, to help it absorb the MP and avoid buckling and bubbles!
