Sometimes finding the “perfect storage solution” is not an easy task. You try things that work and things that fail. Several years ago I purchased one set of these acrylic storage units with the idea that I could use them to store my glitter and you know what … it worked and it’s been my “go to” storage for any form of glitter (or sequins) that I bring into my studio. Please note that I buy glitter in small packs, like these. I do NOT buy big jars of glitter because glitter is a rarity for me and even these small portions will take me forever to use.
Here’s just a few reasons why I love these:
You can store MANY glitters in one place.
Each glitter has it’s own mini container with a LID.
The containers are removable so you can set each one on your work surface as you need them.
WARNING: These types of clear, rigid plastic containers are NOT raw polymer clay compatible. Do not set or store polymer clay in these containers (not liquid clay either), the plasticizers will literally “eat” (melt) the plastic. Read more about this from Ginger Davis Allman’s post.
