Polymer Clay & Glitter Storage by Katie Oskin of KatersAcresSometimes 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.
