Adding solid colors and patterns to mockups is relatively straight forward - simply fill the design using the Fill Color tool. But when you want to get a real sense, in Studio, of what a glitter material will look like you need to do a little more work. You will need Designer Edition for this tutorial...if you don't have it - it's totally worth the $30 or so bucks it will set you back for these 13+ reasons.
NOTE: I've included a video version of this tutorial, below, as well if you'd rather watch than read.
The first thing you want to do is snap a picture of the sheet of glitter HTV or vinyl. You can do this with your phone by emailing the image to yourself and then downloading on your computer.
Open up Silhouette Studio.
Click on the Library icon > click on the My Patterns folder.
Now simply drag and drop the photo that you snapped of the glitter vinyl/HTV from the desktop into the window with all of your patterns.
Open up the design you want filled with the glitter pattern.
Select it and click on Fill Patterns.
Scroll down to where you'll see "My Patterns".
Then click on the glitter pattern/image you added.
And now your design is filled with glitter rather than a solid color.
If it's not "glittery" enough for you (you can see it's 100% in the above screen grab)...click on the "Advanced options".
Move the Scale Pattern bar to the right. The glitter effect will increase as the pattern is enlarged.
