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.
Tangerine glass was one of the original finishes offered in the late 1990’s and has a showy appearance. It has gone through two revisions:
- The first came when the original offering was barely noticeable that it was different than a sparkle finish.
- The second, 3-4 years later, was much better, but still did not equal the level of reflectivity of the original (and current) glass glitters.
The second version, is what we sell today (until we sell out of it) and we primarily keep it for those who have this version (and the original) for a color match.
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, blue, deep blue, green, deep green, purple, tangerine, true black, turquoise, root-beer and pink.
