Make your own glitter craft eyes!

glitter kit

Introducing the new paint-your-own glitter craft eyes kit!  Rather than only offering glitter craft eyes to you for a few months a year, now you can make your own anytime!

The kit includes everything you need to get started, including:

A 6-compartment palette for easy painting and blending

5 Pair of premium clear craft eyes in your size choice

✿ A good paint brush in the appropriate size for the eyes you order

2 Ounces of glitter paint in your choice of color

Detailed instructions and tips that I’ve learned working with glitter paint over the years

There’s even a special kit just for cat eyes.  Everything in the kit is high quality.  The palette is washable and reusable.

Clear craft eyes are available separately, and I’ll be adding glitter paint separately as well over the next few weeks.

Hope you like it!

 

Suncatcher Craft Eyes color styles

These are some photo videos of the different color styles of my craft eyes:  Opaque, Shimmer, Translucent, and Glitter.  I’ve ordered a professional camera, so future photos should be much better quality!



This week on Instagram

This week there were a lot of pretty colors shipping out all over the world – Canada, Iceland, France, Great Britain, Australia, South Africa, and of course the U.S.

The purple and blue flower eyes and the black frosted craft eyes are heading to some crafters for product reviews.

Wishing you a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year!

 

 

Let’s collaborate!
