Using Krylon Glitter Shimmer on fabric?

Does anyone have any experience with using this product on fabric? One of the listed material uses is fabric, but I don't really trust the product description since it doesn't say anything about drying flexible. I want to add a dusting of gold sparkle to a chiffon skirt, but I need something light enough that it will just leave the glitter on the fabric without making it stiff or discolored.

I think you need to just practice on scraps to see if you can get the amount of sparkle you want without stiffening it too much. It will shed glitter, that is just the nature of glitter.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.

I haven't used it on fabric so I can't atest to the stiffness aspect but it REALLY glitters up what you put it on. Definitely spray it outside because if you do it in doors (even ina garage) it will get everywhere. It looks like Tinker Bell exploded when you spray it.

It is hard to see because of the lighting but if you look at the grips and front site you can see the glitter. This was a VERY light dusting.
