I would think glitter glue would work or spray glitter. I had heard we are not allowed to use team /licensed logos 'cause it's against the law. They watch craft shows and can charge a huge fine and take all your stuff. If you are selling it anyway. I just want to know where to find the blocks with holes already in them if you don't live in Hobby Lobby country. Sounds like a lot of people are doing this, will I sell any?
I would like to make with NFL teams on. What did you use to put letters or painting on? What does you finished project look like?
I think the glitter is mixed into a clear-drying glue, then painted over the surfaces. I don't think the blocks can be pulled in halves and reassembled after painting this inside, so you may need to leave it as a surface decoration.
I think I have seen these also and it appears there are several ways to get the glitter to adhere to the glass. My suggestion is to that a small mirror or the glass out of an old picture frame you don't use anyway and practice on them first. Try different types of glues, like: spray glue, E-6000 glue, school glue or low temp hot glue. In addition, why does it have to be directly on the glass? Couldn't you cover a sheet of acetate or laminate with glue and glitter, let it dry, put your template for the school letter or logo on top and cut it our. Seems like it might be easier and maybe even less messy that way. Hope one of my suggestions helps. Send us a photo of your finished product and how you accomplished it. Good luck
I spray the inside of the block with glitter-it and then add the glitter. However when I put in the lights, the glue and glitter is scraped off in some areas. Help.

I have a couple ideas to help. The first that comes to mind is to use a clear spray paint. Find a way to hold that block upside down (ask a Freind or make a contraption) then take your spray can into the glass block and put a clear coat to help it adhere. If fitting a hand and the paint can is an issue then you could try using a glue that's transparent and try mixing it with glitter. A third idea is to buy an almost clear but glittery spray paint. It's very opaque but does have glitter as well but it's very fine specs.
Hope these help
