First we will try "Same Hue" sparkle_type with sparkles percentage at 50%







Now we will try the Rainbow Hue sparkles.
Since sparkles override the rgb values of the colors you select you can do something like make your colors dark.

looks really good Sean!

thanks.





Yeah. Knowing that sparkles take precedence over the colors you select. Here i set all 6 colors to BLACK.
I reduce the sparkle percentage to 10% and use Rainbow random sparkles. Set Fade_3d=N.
