Reflective Glass Beads, All Types, Instructions

For small jobs a container with holes in it  will work just fine. (salt shaker, etc) You can apply the beads manually by simply sprinkling the beads over the fresh paint. It is important to note that the paint needs to be wet for the beads to stick.

You can figure to use approximately 5 to 6 pounds of glass beads, for every 1 gallon of paint.

Reflective Glass Beads can be used with virtually all types of paint, however, we recommend using  a lighter color such as white, orange or yellow.
