I was wondering if there is such a thing as a "glitter effect" in Illustrator? I'm wanting to try something like this to apply on the Revolution football helmet that Josh made...
 
If anyone knows if this is possible or if there is a plug-in or something that will do the trick, I'd like to know how to do it...
 
Thanks,
 
Mike

You could use the Effects Gallery in AI and apply Grain to the object. It will keep the shape vector, but the effect itself is not. But if you resize the part that has the effect applied, it should reapply the effect automatically once your resize is done.

I wondered the same thing. I tested out a few ways and I ended up creating a picture of noise black and white, then making it a pattern swatch (adjusting the size so it would look right before creating the pattern swatch) creating a layer over what I wanted to look "Glittery" and adjusted the transparency down low.

Example:

I don't know if this helps but I'm content with the way it looks.
