Oh, I'm jealous that you get to live near them. Also glad to hear that people who sell good products are also good people -- those are the kind I love to patronize and publicize! I will send them photos!

VERY cool! I ran across this when searching for gold leaf supplies. I happen to live in the very town that Footprints is in--Lawrence, KS. You should definitely email them your results. They are super groovy people, and if you're ever in "Larryville," visit their store, which is a work of art in itself!

the metal flakes are a very successful treatment here. Wear them tomorrow!

WHY "GLITTER SWEATSHOP"?
As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
