Glitter FAIL

I admit it....I'm totally addicted to Pinterest.com. More so than Facebook! I pin everything that catches my eye, all great ideas, decor stuff and most importantly DIY crafts! One of the first things I pinned was a DIY ecofriendly glitter. The directions call for 1/4 cup salt, 1/2 teaspoon food coloring, mix and spread onto foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 for ten minutes.

My results was what looks like colored sand. So I tried baking for another 10 minutes. No change. So I thought maybe it has to cool. No change. Then I tried using sea salt which is alittle thicker and bigger in size. It looks better but no shinny glitter! So either this is a complete fail or the picture used with this recipe is an extreme case of false advertisement.
