Instructions for use


Use Rust-Oleum Glitter Subtle Shimmer paint additive for personalising your paint finish.

Prepare it

For best results, ensure surface is clean and free from contaminates.

Apply It

Slowly add in the glitter to your paint, to avoid clumping and stir continuously. Avoid tipping the glitter in all at once to ensure that you get a consistent mixture. Follow all instructions on the paint or varnish can. Apply a small sample area first and leave to dry to ensure

you are satisfied with the glitter effect. To enhance glitter visibility, dilute the paint by 10-50% with water. Do not store for more than 3 days without venting the can with a small hole and applying tape over the hole. A 70g pack will be sufficient for up to 3-5L.

Cover It
