These reflective beads are made from recycled soda glass so the larger beads will have a blue/green cast. The smaller beads will reflect more light from the surface of the bead and will appear to be more white. The beads may be mixed into clear paint bases or for best effect, heavily sprinkled (or flashed) over wet paint or other viscous mediums. Once the beaded surface is dry, the excess can be knocked or brushed off for reuse in further work. One pound of Fine (30-50 mesh) glass beads will cover approximately a 10 square foot surface area. Finer mesh will cover more and larger mesh will cover less.
