Is there an exterior home paint that is sparkling or has glitter in it?
 
Hi,
I am looking for a gray exterior home paint that is sparkling or that glitter has been added to it.

Thanks

Inquiring minds want to know...why?

What's the punch line?

I'm guessing that would be called a cookie cutter.

I don't know of a stock paint but there is a glitter additive that I have used on interior walls.Check your local Lowe's or Home Depot for the additive and see if it can be used on exteriors.

I did a house about 6 months ago with some kinda glitter stuff from Lowe's.You had to mix it in the paint and use it within five days.

Wow- really?!
Did you use the glitter spreader?
I haven't seen that in - like i said.. 30 years. Must be a retro thing.

cdaniels 01-16-2013 06:31 PM

No spreader....just rolled it on. Very retro....and cool...imo

I've never heard of such a thing, and I'll think I'll not touch this, lest I get into trouble.

Used to spread it on popcorn ceilings back in the day for that disco ball effect! lol
if you mix it in, doesn't it loose the shine?
Had to sit on top when I did it.

cdaniels 01-16-2013 06:53 PM

lol....No it still shows up pretty good.I thought the same thing before I used it.The label said after five days you would have to add more to get the effect.

theres quite a few houses around town with that glitter crap on the texture ceilings.
different i must say!
cool?
not really!
and you always seem to get a piece of glitter or two on you from houses with it and then you go home to the wife questioning you asking what kind of woman you were hanging out with while you are suppose to be at work lol

Yes, and very classy it was.
