Default Diamond Glaze, Crystal Effects and Diamond Dust

I want to use a product called Diamond Dust distributed by FloraCraft on some projects I am making. This product is thicker than SU's dazzling diamonds glitter, it's almost 3 dimensional. Recollections says to use Diamond Glaze by JudiKins. I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with either of these products and the Diamond Dust. Thanks for your help.

I got Diamond Dust at Michaels. Its a thick grade glitter and very nice for some projects. It comes in a big plastic jar with a pinkish lid. It's not at all the fine quality of superfine glitters like Dazzling Diamonds by SU. I sometimes actually put a little dazzling diamond into my Diamond Dust to give it a bit more sparkle.
Here's a project I did using Diamond Dust:

I've never used Diamond Glaze but I think it is the same thing as Crystal Effects, a clear super hard drying clear gel glaze. Crystal Effects (and I assume Diamond Glaze) has no glitter in it at all. It will make a high gloss sheen on something or will act as a super strong adhesive, like for heavy embellishments.

That is a beautiful project you did. I wanted to use the Diamond Dust on lunchboxes for Christmas. Can't wait to see how they turn out. Thanks for the info.

I use Diamond Glaze all the time and like it - it leaves a clear, hard, glossy finish. I have never used the Diamond Dust, but now I think I may have to get some! Don't you just love Recollections!? I have a hard time staying out of that store.... Let us see what you make with all these supplies!
