  • Can you recommend something for sparkle?

    I know there's probably loads of answers for this, but I want to add a bit of sparkle to some of my models and wondered if anyone had any suggestions?
    something subtle and not too fiddly please, I considered just putting glitter into the varnish but because of the small scale of my figures the 'bits' might be too big. I don't always use varnish either. Is there a powder? Do I have to apply the sparkle before of after curing?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Perfect Pearls powders would be ideal

    You brush them over unbaked clay, and because they have an in-built resin, they bond with the clay very well in the baking process. So you don't need to varnish over them.

    If you do give a coat of varnish, obviously it will make the clay even more durable and make the colours of the powders really pop; but it isn't necessary.
