GLITTER :To make edible glitter, brush a very thin coat of gum glue onto a piece of glass and let dry in the sun.When its dry it will peel away from the glass and can be scraped off the glass and crushed into very fine glitter.
This glitter can be made any color by adding food color to the gum glue.
When glitter drys a very soft win will blow it away if its out side in the sun.It can be painted in a Pyrex bowl and dried in a warm oven.Pour between paper and roll until find.Store in jars.

GUMGLUE: Mix powdered gum Arabic with a small amount of water and let sit until it thickens to consistency of glue.Paint on fresh gum paste to stick two pieces together.When painted on dry pieces it shines like varnish.

can you tell me where to get the gum Arabic? Is it something found in a craft store or online only?
