About Glitter Basecoat -
Painting with glitter is easier than ever before with this revolutionary new basecoat medium! A tintable, neutral base with grit, it grabs the glitter, allowing for fuller coverage in fewer coats. Use with your favorite art and craft glitter paints. To use, mix Glitter Basecoat with a water-based acrylic paint color similar to the glitter paint color using a 1:1 ratio (recommended for most applications). Paint surface. Once basecoat has dried, brush on glitter paint.
For a monochromatic look, match an Americana Acrylic paint color to your glitter color before you start painting. For a dramatic effect, choose a contrasting Americana Acrylic paint color from the color of glitter you are using. Always pre-mix (use a palette knife) your Americana Acrylic paint with DecoArt Glitter Basecoat before you begin painting. Never mix directly on the surface to be painted. For even coverage use a fan brush when applying Glitter Basecoat mixture to your surface in a cross-hatch motion.
