Alright, so I'm working on a pretty prom type dress. I want to put some sprinkles of glitter on it, But the only Fabric glitter they have other than straight glitter paint (Which I don't want. Not the effect I want.) Is too dark of a green ("They" being Joanns) I already have the glitter bond stuff (Tulip brand) And I'm wondering if I can use ultra fine or regular craft glitter instead of the fashion glitter. Is there a huge difference? I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to stick this dress randomly into the washing machine anyway... so what do you think? Any alternatives ya'll might be able to suggest if alternative craft type glitter wouldn't work?

For the record, I'll be trying to affix it to Costume Satin.

Thank you in advance Cheesy

Just do a few tests on some scraps of fabric, try out all your options - then choose!  You can't go wrong, and your technique will benefit from the practice you get.  Let us know what you decide to do!
