    I have used the glitter paint before when I would do it around sweatshirts and would wash them numerous times. The only thing I found was to not use cold water when washing. It would crack the glitter paint.

    they have fabric paints to use on fabrics that are also sparklly i like using the clear with glitter stuff in it so the fabric color shows through. you can find it at most micheals, joanns or hobby lobby

    I used "it's ok to wash it" glue I get at JoAnns, then I sprinkle glitter over it, seems to have more sparkle than the glue with sparkle in it. I have done this on many sweat shirts and it washes fine.

    thank you, doubt if i would wash it as it will only be up a week or 2 a year, the web sites you given me are all in U.S. So will have to look for similar products here in U.K., Many thanks for info.
