Q: What is the process of buffing?
A: Buffing is the last step of your painting project that increases glitter effect up to 50%.
This fast and straightforward process will release thousands of more glitter crystals over a given area after knocking off the head of the paint by gently rubbing the buffing pad over the dried surface of the wall.
Q: Can I mix the glitter paint additive with any type of water-based emulsion paint?
A: Yes. Glitter Paint Additive is universally cooperative with nearly any type of water-based emulsion paint, with the only exception being paint with a specific "one coat" application, those designed specifically for kitchen & bathroom, durable, endurance and acrylic eggshells.
Q: I've used other brand glitter paint without success, so what makes your stand out from the competition?
A: In a side-by-side comparison with top competitors, our product was overwhelmingly chosen for its quality and finish 9 times out of 10. With the addition of the revolutionary, standard-changing PTFE coating technology, the results are in the way the glitter rises naturally to the surface to make for an exceptional effect on decorative finishes.
Q: Is PTFE coating safe for children and pets to be around?
A: PTFE type coatings are absolutely safe to use around children and pets. PTFE is harmless and can be found in anything from non-stick pans to the coatings of medical equipment due to its ability to resist and fight bacteria. Health and safety is a top priority at Sparkly Dust and as such, we assure our products are safe to use on all applications.
Q: What is a holographic rainbow effect and how does it work?
A: The process is quite simple. The crystals diffract white light to give off a prismatic reflection creating a rainbow effect of differing colors.
Q: Does lighting affect how the glitter acts?
A: Light does play a significant role in the way the glitter looks and acts. In a room that receives nice natural light or benefits from special overhead lighting, the result is that the glitter paint catches and reflects the glimmer particles within the paint.
