  • glitter or no glitter.

    Hi, I bought my daughter some tops from the market the other week. they were all glittery and so nice looking. She wore one the other day, so it needed washing. we washed it acording to manufacturers instuctions. and hey presto all the glitter had come off. The tops are made from 95% viscose 5% elastane. So off we went to the local fabric shop and bought some more glitter. this is called Hi-tack glitter glue. Again we followed the instructions, it looked great. after wearing it, in the wash it went following the new instructions. Hey presto the glitter has all gone again. Is there a glitter monster lurking in the washer?????. well now we are doing what we should have done in the first place, ask thoese who know. So could anyone recommend a glitter glue? that will stay on after washing? If you know it works will you please share it? As she is driving us nuts because of this problem. thank you all.

    if you get some of the tulip fabric paint maybe and kind of rub it in? it should stay but might make the top hmm kind of crusty, thats all i can think of.

      I use Tonertex products and the glitters and foils never come off in the wash.
