It is possible mix different background colors and different concentrations of glitter to obtain a "sparkle" more or less important. It is also possible create surfaces in which the color is the the glitter that covers completely.
The most requested effect because it is also the one where you see more the brilliance is with shiny clear. Since the glitter have dimensions between 100micron and 200micron (the largest of the other pigments) to ensure visual professional results we prefer to insert the glitter in a base for double layer and then lay-on the glossy transparent, this to hide the shape of the small glitter and leave a shiny surface perfect.
