Have you used them? Do they work good? I ought a couple sets the other day in hopes of using w my mists or stamps... But realized they have this sticker piece on top that you peel off so glitter or flock can adhere to it.

But I didn't have any glitter or flock to pull at the moment so I tried my foam Thickers and the OA sprinklers worked GREAT!

I have the mistable thickers and love them and the DIY thickers that are covered in adhesive so you can add glitter, flock, etc. I like them but not as much as the mistable ones. Those are fun! I like making things any color I want! Also, the DIY thickers are thinner than the mistables and regular thickers. I did a video showing how to use the DIY Thickers once on my youtube channel and I believe Shimelle did one as well!

I love them and use them all the time with glitter. I have the Pink Paislee Pixie Stix and want to use up my stash, so they help me do that.

Also, Glitter Girl did a video on them last year, so if you haven't already seen that, it would be worthwhile as she shows what works with them (and what doesn't).

Hope you enjoy them!

I bought 4 sets and don't really like them. The ones I altered with my copics the paper is coming off. I think the are only good for DYI glittering. I used some with some old Judikins Rox (super chunky glitter) and it worked pretty good. I don't own much glitter besides diamond, gold, & silver. For misting, I like the mistable thickets better.

What I have been doing is getting the white foam thickers and altering those with my copics and other markers. I've been really pleased with the results.

I bought a pack recently, and I'm debating returning it. I didn't realize there was a difference between DIY and mistable - and I wanted to use mists, not glitter.

Hmmm...exchange or purchase glitter to try them out?

I like them, but the DIY are not for coloring, the paper will come off. It's just like a foam dot. You need to get mistables, or really just the white foam or fabric (or any other I guess) if you just want to color

I keep extra packages of white thickers around. If I need a color that I don't have, I just color the white ones with my Big Brush Markers. Viola!

I didn't get the "special" thickers because I just use all my white ones that way.
