All I did was tape off the area I didn’t want glittered, painted some modge podge up to the line, and then sprinkled some glitter on. When it dried, I coated the glitter with another layer of modge podge with a little water mixed in.
Now, a year later I drug out all of my old wedding stuff to begin selling the stuff I won’t be using anymore since we will (hopefully) be moving soon. I kept a little of everything for memory but I had bulk in almost everything. For example, 34 wine glasses. I didn’t need them, they were taking up space in a giant tote that we could use for moving and storage and stuff. So I got them out and then it hit me, oh yeah- they are covered in gold glitter. Who is going to just so happen to need 34 wine glasses covered in gold glitter? Probably not many. So I knew I had to find a way to get the modge podge off. I read a few different ways online that involved buying some kind of fancy product. I then found one that suggested soaking for recently glittered glass. Mine had been glittered for about a year but I wanted to try it anyways except I took it one extra step extra to ensure good glitter removal and it was SO easy. I was surprised. I was expecting to spend hours prying the glitter off, if it was even going to be possible. I was so excited about how easy it was, I knew I needed to share it with others in case any one else had a glitter-y wedding or just loves to craft.
Sketty modge was completely successful at this task. Ahead of its time in many ways, it incorporated pasta at a time when the only spaghetti you could get in the shops came in cans, and madras curry powder, which you could only get on the black market.
