It is possible to mix different background colors and different concentrations of glitter to obtain a "sparkle" effect. It is also possible to create surfaces in which the colour is the glitter that covers completely.
The most requested effect, because it is also the one where you see more the brilliance, is the shiny clear. Since the glitter has dimensions between 100micron and 200micron (larger than those of other pigments) to ensure visual professional results, we prefer to insert the glitter in a base for double layer and then lay-on the glossy transparent in order to hide the shape of the small glitter and leave a perfect shiny surface.
