Is glitter gel hard to find?
most makeup shops and theater supply places have it. or its everywhere on eBay.
you can DIY as suggested, but the advantage to getting the premade is you know its been tested to be hypoallergenic. Nothing in glitter gel should cause an allergic reaction but these days better safe. its not expensive.
The difference between craft and cosmetic grade is the paint pigments used to color the glitter. As some may argue that both craft and cosmetic glitter are not metal but polyester. Non-toxic simply means it is ok for humans to use - not wear or eat.
Cosmetic glitter is equally as cheap as craft glitter. Yes craft glitter is quick to find at Walmart or such and cosmetic grade may have to be ordered. Oh well!
An inexpensive glitter gel is Snazaroo, or try Amerikan Body Art, as you can get it there in varied sizes and colors. But lots of places have glitter gel including the big makeup companies like Mehron. Or hit up most stores that cater to body painters and see what they carry, and ask about some tricks.
