Is it easier to apply metallic wall paint or glitter wall paint?

Metallic wall paint can add a modern or industrial feel to a room. It is regular paint with additives that give it a metallic sheen.

  • Metallic wall paint can be purchased at any paint or home improvement store and as a rule isn't any more expensive than regular wall paints. It can be applied with a roller or brush, so it is an easy job for a homeowner to do.
  • Glitter wall paint is paint that has granite granules added to it to create a shine. The paint must be stirred regularly to keep the glitter evenly dispersed. Many painters suggest spraying the paint on rather than brushing or rolling it so you will need that equipment and know the correct way to use it, so it can be a bit more difficult to apply than metallic wall paint.
