glitter (inside & outside)
To start, make sure the inside of the ornament ball is dust free. If it does appear to be dusty, pour in some vinegar, swirl it around and let it dry clean. Apply our ‘Glitter-Brite’, by squeezing about a quarter of the amount in the bottle, inside the ornament. Now swirl the liquid around by tilting the ornament and turning it in your hands; tilting and turning so the liquid covers the entire surface. Then turn the ornament ball upside down and let the excess ‘Glitter-Brite’ drain into a plastic cup. Pour in about 2/3 of the glitter; leaving some left over in the bottle. (We’ll need that later to decorate the outside of the ornaments) . Now swirl the glitter around by tilting the ornament and turning it in your hands; tilting and turning so the glitter adheres to the entire surface. twist on the cap and shake. In seconds you’ll be holding a fully glittered ornament ready for more decoration. Glitter can really be used inside and outside to complete a dazzling look.

acrylic paint (outside)
Let’s face it, everybody loves to paint! You too can be a Picasso for a day. It’s easy, fun and very therapeutic. Squirt some paint onto the ball. Spread the paint evenly with the included foam brush. Use several coats to create a matte effect. Sprinkle some glitter while the paint is wet or use the other outside treatments after the paint dries.
