There have been glass glitters made in the past (mostly in the early 1980’s), but the appearance was not as favorable as the sparkle finishes. The newer crop of glass glitters (offered in the late 1990’s) are the best to date, which are extremely popular. Others may have referred to our glass glitters as “broken glass”, “crushed glass” or “sparkle glass”.
Tangerine glass was one of the original finishes offered in the late 1990’s and has a very pleasing look. Since then, there have been three issues of it:
- The first issue came with the original ones offered, but was barely noticeable that it was different than a sparkle finish.
- The second one (3-4 years later) was much better, but still did not equal the level of reflectiveness of the original (and current) glass glitters.
- But the third issue was first sold by Drum Workshop (DW) around the mid 2000’s, and has been referred to as “super tangerine” glass glitter. And this finish has been sought after by many drummers.
As of today, we sell more custom cut, glass glitter kits, than we do sparkle finishes. The colors we sell in this type of wrap are: silver, red, gold, black, blue, deep blue, green, deep green, purple, tangerine, true black, turquoise, root-beer and pink.
