Those prices are obscene for edible, gum arabic based glitter icon_eek.gif

You can find the same, if not larger, selection for 1/3rd the price at:

DON'T USE THE NEW RECIPE RECENTLY POSTED, THOUGH.
That recipe suggests baking granulated sugar with liquid color added to it. It's a complete waste of time. All you need to do to get "that" product is to mix gel/paste color with granulated sugar in a zip top bag and rub it around until the color is well mixed. There is NO need to bake it.

This recipe works for metallic glitter:

This recipe works well, too. Add color to the water.

50 ML (10tsp)HOT WATER
25 G ( a scant 1 ounce ) GUM ARABIC

1. POUR WATER INTO A BOWL AND SPRINKLE GUM ARABIC OVER. STAND THE BOWL IN HOT WATER, STIRRING GENTLY TO DISSOLVE.
2. STRAIN MIXTURE THROUGH A PIECE OF NYLON. BRUSH MIXTURE ONTO A CLEAN BAKING TRAY OR GLASS SURFACE AND PLACE IN A WARM OVEN (140C or 275F) UNTIL DRY.
3. BRUSH OR SCRAPE THE DRY GLITTER OFF THE TRAY AND CRUSH IN INTO FINE FLAKES. STORE THE GLITTER IN AN AIRTIGHT JAR.

BlakesCakes: what makes the second recipe metallic? Surely regular color won't do that?

The second recipe isn't metallic---not all edible glitter is--just shiny.

You could make it metallic by mixing in some edible luster dust (sugarpaste.com), but that wouldn't be transparent.
