I’d get an acrylic sealer personally. Hairspray works in a pinch, too.

ETA: Hairspray can matte, but it isn’t as promenant as other remedies.

@love108:  mix the glitter with the modge podge and paint that on. It will look milky but dry clear and sparkly! Use gloss if you can!

That kyrlon crystal clear acrylic didn’t work for me. It was not clear IMO. Maybe I didn’t let it dry long enough idk. I used modge podge spray shiny and my vases still glitter

I used elmers glue mixed with a little water. I painted it on the vases and coated in glitter. After it dried I sealed with modge spray. 

Here they are

mix the glitter into the mod podge and then paint that on. It might take a few coats if you want it to be uniform, but it will do the job. I would seal it with another layer of mp afterwards, if you’re worried, but it should be okay

I’ll swear by triple thick gloss acrylic (spray or brush) to seal anything in.  Personally, I prefer to brush on  over glitter – but you need a really soft puffy brush.  Spray can blast off the glitter and spread it all over. Triple Thick leaves a smooth as glass finish too and adds to the shine.

Glue & water works well too.  Again, a very soft brush – like a makeup bronzer brush to paint it on.

Krylon makes this awesome glitter spray paint its called glitter blast it comes in all sort of colors & is fairly easy to work with just make sure you dont over spray an area or it starts to drip just like regular spray paint. It can be purchased at craft stores like Michael’s or Hobby Lobby =)Also any type of spray lacquer would work great!

This whole mix loose glitter with whatever thing really baffles me. Just get some glitter paint (Martha Stewart brand worked great for me). I tried to Mod Podge/loose glitter a Christmas gift and it was awful–I painted my wedding shoes with MS glitter paint and they turned out great (plus, no loose glitter everywhere).
