Glitter Paint Galaxy Home Decoration
From the Designer: "This is an easy project to make with Dollar Store wooden letters and the amazing Intense Glitter paint from Testors Craft. First sand the black paint on the letters a little to ensure your paint will stick nicely. Then, create a 'galaxy' effect by dabbing on teal, hot pink, purple and dark grey paint randomly over the letter. Blot with paper towel to get a diffused effect. When you're happy with the background look, spatter some white paint over the letters to give the illusion of stars. Allow all the pieces to dry thoroughly. Apply the Testors Craft Intense Glitter paint liberally all over the painted letters. You will not believe the stunning Milky Way look that this project will have!"
