I have hit a dead end and thought I'd put it to EB to help me. Surely somebody here could help me?

Does anybody know of a glitter paint for walls?

I want to do a feature wall in Crystal's bedroom that is glittery.

Ideally it would be a clear paint with silver glitter in it.

This has turned into a quest for me, I have rang a few places and I have had no luck yet.

One place suggested to get a clear matte finish and to put glitter in it, but I don't know. I do not want to do that only for the glitter to break down in the paint, iykwim?

*sigh* I *will* not give up hope on my envisioned pretty room for my babe!

I can't help with getting it...

But I have seen someone who used it... It looked terrible... It was all patchy, glitter really thick in some areas and non existant in others... Absolutely nothing like what they advertise...

Probably doesn't help much but I thought I should let you know anyway... I will try to find out where they got it from if you like, though it was a while ago.

You can get it at Bunnings in the Paint section. I *think* it's made by Dulux - "colour effects" range.

Can't say for certain but I am sure I have seen some in big w, but it may have been the chalkboard range??  Not sure how long ago though. I am with the other pp that I think dulux has one too

Thanks for the answers so far.

I have been to Bunnings, they say they have no glitter paints.

There used to be a Disney range but that was discontinued. (I think this was the chalkboard range in Big W too).

Dulux had 'Wonderwalls Fairydust' but that is also discontinued.

Keep the answers coming girls. Surely someone can have the magic answer? *fingers crossed*.

Yes, that was it. Ring Dulux and see if you can track down some old stock?

My local Big W has the Dulux had Wonderwalls Fairydust, I saw it there last week. Perhaps trying to ring around a few stores, you never know who may just have it in stock still.

Good luck!  My local Big W had the Disney tubes just a couple of weeks ago.  Not sure if the tubes are enough though!  There was glitter, glow in the dark etc available.

We used the Dulux one for Madi a few years ago, it was a bit patchy like Nut described but I did it myself  blush.gif  Our friends has a painter do theirs & it looked much better!

I can tell you its an absolute pain if you want to re-paint the room, Its Sam's room now & we didn't think he would want a bright pink glittery room & boy did it take some sanding to get off.

Thanks again.

After going to another Bunnings shop today I have found out more.

Dulux DO still make the Fairy Dust.

BUT they do not stock it in South Australia and it is not possible to order one to come to an SA shop.  cry1.gif

You know, this should just be water off a ducks back and I should just forget about it. But the thing is, is that I am not a creative person, I never get 'inspired' to create something....... and now that I have this idea in my head, it is just about all I can think about.

**kicks foot in dirt** This is s'not fair!  cry1.gif

Hmm, I am going to ring Dulux Head Office in Australia on Monday morning and make a complaint and beg them to send me a tin. *fingers, toes and everything crossed* .

Crystal will have a pretty bedroom!

I have done a few walls and cubby house with both the Dulux one and also one from Lindcraft. Lind craft one is with the Poster Paints and is in a big clear bottle and pretty cheap. they both looked just as good as each other.

Oooooooh, thank you! I will have to go check that out.

I swear I will murder the sales assistant there if they say they have discontinued the line! ROFL!

I saw some cans of glitter spray paint in Bunnings yesterday, think it was about 10 bucks a can?

Might go on more evenly than with a brush??

Anyway, hope you find what youre looking for, good luck  original.gif
