Cheers Gentlemen! Would glitter be a fine enough material to work on something this small?

Probably not which is why I mention the powder of pearl. Have a pop in Hobby Craft if you have one nearby or a decent art shop and have a browse (tell them Liberace sent you  lol ).

Pardon a possibly stupid question of mine:
if glitter and powder of pearl is already discussed, why not use metallic paint from the start?

I once used a thin wash made from silver metallic to let an otherwise matt black armour glitter a bit but stay black

I love the metallic non metallic work you did on the armor. Last year I tried to paint some gold armor parts, without obtaining such a result.

Yes, this is what I would do. Thinned metallic paint will give you the shimmer you want.

Well......I have to apologise unreservedly!!! I did think you all had seriously lost the plot with the glitter thing!! I honestly thought I would have to redo the paint work after messing it up with the glitter!...but I have to say you were ALL right! So.....SORRY!

The glitter in Hobbycraft was too big and I couldn't find any powder of pearl! What I did get was a cheap glitter paint! The thing I get with this over using a wash of metallic paint is the small flakes of glitter are an iridescent colour, not just silver, but a range of metallics.



I'm afraid it doesn't show up that well in any pics I take, but it does look good in real life!! Magic special effects straight from a 60's/70's dodgy fantasy film!!







I've also tried to paint the broken shield as a Greek one...



Cheers for all your help guys!!
