Default Are there any other brands that make "heat and stick"?

Hi

I bought a pallette glue pad from Jo's the other day but after reading bad reviews I am going to return it!

I originally wanted the SU heat and stick, but forgot to order it duh hence buying the palette one.

I would have to wait until next month to buy it from SU, I buy once a month but will not order it before then as I cannot stand paying SU shipping prices, they are ridiculous!

So do Jos or Michaels or a LSS sell something just like Heat and Stick please?

Thanks!

I don't know if chain craft stores do. Your LSS probably does, but, I don't know the brand names of any except for A Muse Artstamp's Simple Stick.

I will say that I have purchased half a dozen different brands of "sticky" embossing powder over my years of stamping, and hands-down, Simple Stick has been the very best one I have ever worked with--it's ground much finer than all the other brands I tried, and, has the least amount of clumping.

Chances are, if your LSS stocks A Muse, then, they probably carry Simple Stick.

If you're looking for a better glue pad than the Palette, check out Tsukineko's. I've heard reports however, that it's hit and miss; I apparently lucked out an got a very good Tsukineko Glue Pad--works amazingly well, but, not everybody has had the same luck. Not sure why there have been such varied inconsistencies . . .

HTH,

Stampendous also offers sticky powder... it's called "Stamp 'n Bond".

What exactly does one use heat and stick for? Does it become sticky when heated? Would you use it for, say, applying glitter? Do you stamp an image with versamark, the put this powder on it? Help! I have always wondered, but never knew what this stuff is for. I have a jar, but never knew why (which is typical)... I think I bought it to get my order up over a certain amount to get something free

Yes. It is used just like embossing powder, so stamping with VersaMark would be perfect. (The Embossing Buddy would be a good idea before stamping.) Then sprinkle the powder on and tap off the excess, again like EP. Then, when heated, it melts... but becomes liquidy instead of hard like EP. The liquidy stuff is very sticky, and works great for glitter, flocking, foiling, etc.

Yes, what Spud said above!

Also another tip:

Heat it just until it looks glossy WET, and keep your heat gun a little further back, moving it in until you see it actually turn from granular to wet looking. When you apply the glitter or flock, work it in a little with your finger tips. Then, shake of the excess glitter/flock to funnel back into the jar.

I also heat set it gently (if you overheat, you'll burn it) again afterwards, to "lock in" the glitter.

HTH! It's really fun stuff--I love working with it!

You can pour fine coffee grounds or sand over it. Muy cool!
