Everybody is familiar with the dazzling effects of glitter. The small, shiny particles that are often used for decoration – it works for a variety of purposes but mainly to create stunning and shimmering results wherever used.

We have Henry Ruschmann to thank for this.

Not many know that the discovery of glitter was actually accidental! Back then in 1934, the American machinist was looking for a way to compress old garbage in landfills and collected scrap plastic materials. He figured out a way to grind and transform it into the magical pixie dust we know today.

Able to successfully convert plastic into glitter, he later founded Meadowbrook Inventions and became a major supplier (that is still popular to this date). But it was only during the 90s that the craze for glitter as an ingredient of a magical childhood came into existence. Companies began to market this to spread the craze while glitter pens became a worldwide sensation overnight.

And for good reason too.

So let’s take a dive and see what constitutes the popularity of the glitter pen!
