How can decorators ensure a clean application and avoid making a mess with UV glitter applications?

UV glitter applications are pretty amazing. This high margin product allows you to offer your customers products that they can’t get anywhere else when done correctly. As far as I know, the Mimaki UV printer that has PR200 primer is the only UV printer on the market that can do the glitter application. The glitter needed is a fine powder that can get everywhere if you’re not careful. A tip to help with the glitter application is to add water to your glitter prior to applying the glitter to the jettable primer.
