Is there an exterior home paint that is sparkling or has glitter in it?


I'm pretty sure Barney Frank's house has it.

There's nothing "gay" about that. The wife asked if I could do it in the small bathroom, and I simply added multi-colored glitter to the paint. We both like the results. On the textured walls, it's kinda nice actually. The grandkids love it too!

if you mix it in, doesn't it loose the shine?
Had to sit on top when I did it.

Did my share of them also. Had one of those hand held cheese grater things that blew it up onto the wet paint. Not for me but it was kind of cool looking

When the Twilight saga spawns it's next batch of branded merchandise maybe you'll see some paint that sparkles in the sunlight, just like vampires do.

The original poster hasn't been back to tell us about where and why to use it on exterior.
I'm kind of curious.

All of us are talking about using it on ceilings

On a project two years ago, we added metal flake to an exterior grade oil enamel for a front door.; similar to the process used to create most metallic paints.

LOL. I know it sounds kinda crazy but my mother considers herself a person with great ideas. She thought her house would stand out and look really nice if she could get it painted with something that sparkled when the sun hit it.
She is determined to to it. Her house is brink but parts have the wood parts around the top.
So the whole house wouldn't be like that just those parts.

Is there anything that could be added to the paint to make it sparkle?

Back in the mid-seventies we sold those hand-crank glitter guns and bags of silver or gold gliter. I never understood why someone would want that in their home and still don't understand. I have learned one thing for sure though:
"There's no countin' for taste..."
