Can you mix glitter and acrylic paint? ?

I'm trying to paint a canvas portrait and I don't want glitter to come off right after I apply it or else it will mess my art.

    You might want to use a transparent medium, like glue, to display a glittering effect. Acrylic paint is the most unforgiving, fast drying and masking of all paints, the glitter effect might just get swallowed up and masked. Wait till the acrylic dries and then apply your glitter on top of it.

    You can apply glitter before the paint is dry and it will sit on top of the paint. If you mix it into the acrylic paint, it won't be "glittery" but it will make a textured paint with the glitter lumps in it. The glitter will be coated with paint.
