Haha, as long as it's glitter talk, it belongs here Smile

Wyndy - I KNOW!! I got a pound each of irr white, hot pink, yellow and periwinkle blue from silly farm. Although the periwinkle looks far more purple than blue...and that makes me want to buy the ice blue as well...but while I want it, I think I obviously don't need it...next time Razz

I use the shimmers through the brush, and my loose glitters in a 1oz poof....I don't care for the 1/2 oz poofs.....they clog and are harder on the hands.

Does Poofing Glitter Hurt?

Post by OctoberMoon on Thu Nov 12, 2009 11:45 pm

[quote="Shannon Fennell"]I don't poof anymore... aside from it hurting (RSI!!) I find using a small screw top pot with a small sponge tipped applicator works really well for me.
I saw where Shannon mentioned this and I HAVE had children "wince" when I've poofed...I thought they were just reacting to the puff of air, but maybe not....I'd try it on my face, but I'm old and tough! Very Happy ...I am seriously considering doing ONLY little pots of glitter myself, and am experimenting with brushes to use...I didn't think I was allergic or affected by anything, but it does seem that I can "feel", in my throat, all that flying glitter in the air...weird sensation...my daughters told me I was going to get "glitter lung"... No Anyone else notice it?

When Shannon said it hurt, she meant it hurts her hands to squeeze the poof bottle, not that the glitter hurts when poofed on.
When children wince a little, it is in response to the little unexpected burst of air. I usually tell them what I am about to do so they expect the slightly odd sensation of the air poofing.

What Lisa said!

I have wrist issues and repetitive strain injuries in my hands... squeezing repeatedly over a period of time is extremely painful.

Got it! Embarassed I'm tired, that must be it (Duh...great "first impression, huh?)! Yes, I have arthritis and noticed it bothered me some, too. Anyway, due to eating too much glitter in the air, I still think I'm going with pots.... Cool

I'm thinking about the pots also. Sometimes when you poof you get alot of glitter flowing out and sometimes just a little. I don't have good control over the amount that comes out. Many children twitch when I poof glitter on them. I know on myself, if it gets near my nose or near my peripheral vision I see sparkles everywhere I look and its annoying. So if I dab glitter it will be more controlled. Problems I've encountered with dabbing, I've ruined linework because it wasn't dry, need to clean fingers each time you dab, using fingers looks less professional, more time consuming than a quick poof, glitter is concentrated in small fingertip circles.

As I think I mentioned - I just stick a small eyeshadow applicator into the pot of glitter. Then when I want to add glitter I just pull it out of the pot, hold it over where I want glitter, tap it to make the glitter fall off.... done. No touching the person so it goes back in the pot.

It's neat, tidy and easy.

I have the poof bottle but I don't poof the glitter it's really messy....I just put the bottle close to the design (not touching the face) and I tap the bottle and that's it! the glitter comes out perfectly....
I like those bottles, you don't have to touch the person or use any brushes.....

I tried Shannon's eye-shadow sponge-applicator method today, and it's great! ~ glitter where you want it and not so much in the air! Now to get more applicators....
Thank you, Shannon! I love you

These bottles come from the manufacterer with no hole in them(I found this out when testing them). I used a sewing needle which makes a small hole and not much comes out. Then I took one and used a thumb tack to enlarge the hole and a ton came out. You just have to figure out what works for you.

So for anyone who buys them from me, you may need to enlarge the hold just a bit by taking a needle and inserting it and rotating just a bit until you get it as big as you like. Test before you make it too big.

So if you have one and too much comes out, whoever you bought it from, made the hold too big. If you buy empties to replace the tops, just make sure to ask for ones that have not been punctured so you can make your own.

One of the ladies in my jam group hails from the UK and she has this black bulbous syringe type bottle with a metal cap on it for her glitter. It's awesome (though at first glance it looked like something you'd get from an adult store Embarassed and at second glance it looks like a salt shaker). just a gentle squeeze and it mists the glitter effortlessly. I want some of those! For glitter.

Except it has no hallucinagenic qualities...unless you dump it in your eyes... Rolling Eyes

but then, that's more refractory than hallucinagenic...never mind...forget I said anything... Laughing
