    Step 4

    did a layer of the fine glitter on the bottom wedge part and then a layer of the course, big, chunky glitter over it for depth and so i wouldnt have too many holes of non-glitter showing through. but let each layer dry first!

    Step 5

    the straps i thought it would give it more definition to just do the fine glitter
