So I completely redid my daughters bedroom. Stripped it down to the studs. new electric, insulation, lighting, drywall and paint. my part is done and the room is a (imho) horrible color pink. My wife's part of this adventure was to paint stars and hearts on the walls in metallic colors using a stencil.

The stencil idea didn't go so well. The metallics don't cover the base pink color well or evenly. so me to the rescue. Paint the colors onto plain wallpaper, cut out shapes and stick to the wall. Well my wife has decided that the metallics werent shinny enough so she decided to use colored glitter. Of course it doesn't stick well to the paper so she flipped out.

here's where my bottle of future came to the rescue. after coating with glitter and drying I covered the glitter with future. Now no glitter brushes off and it's even shinnier than before. This makes for a happy wife. She was even happier when I explained Ellison die's to her and that I have access to a ton of them at work. now if she could find someone else to hang them she can totally get out of doing any work on this project…….

May have to re-coat after a while but sounds like a win. Spray lacquer may have worked (but a good idea is to save it for the mini's)
