SO i think i've figured out how to make glitter fruits. inspired by glitterlimes. i've been in love with them forever, had one for a while, it fell off and i lost it.

had to try. pictures:

Is that... a real tiny pear? Would you mind sharing how you do it? (It's ok if you don't, but if it's not a secret, I'm curious, cause that's pretty damn cool =)

I have never heard of glitterlimes or glitter fruits.  But I do love me some glitter on just about anything!  I too would be very curious to know how this was done, if you don't mind. Smiley

Never heard of this either. I have a tree full of small lemons, so I love to know what you have done to these. I love glitter and these look so fun.

this is by no means me advertising for glitterlimes, but glitterlimes dot com have been around for a while. i've never seen anyone else duplicate them, so i feel kind of bad doing it and then sharing the technique I used.

should i?

YES,YES,YES!  I looked on their website and they really don't show their products to full advantage. They must be popular, but they don't market well. I would not have given them a second look.So, please tell us what you did. Your pictures are very nice, and I would love even more of a close up on the citrus- if you could. I saw on the website they said something about crystals, I think, but I could not see it. Oh, please let us in on what you have done! I have citrus fruit waiting on the tree and the dehydrator is being plugged in as I type!!! Thank you so much for showing this!!!!!

You're the best! I will certainly give this a try and hope mine turns out as great as yours! Thanks so much,raeannimal.
