Default Crystal Effects

Is there any non-SU! product similar to Crystal Effects? I'd like to get it so I can get a jump on my Christmas cards, instead of waiting until the next time I place an order. Also, are there any tips/good advice that you'd like to share about using it?

CTMH has something called liquid glass that I think is exactly the same thing. I would recommend you use your piercing tool before you use it. One time I used mine and couldn't get it to come out. I kept on squeezing it and wouldn't you know the whole cap came off and plop right into my lap came a big glob of glue! My hubby said did we learn a lesson here? No more glueing on the recliner. . .oops!

Crystal Effects is the best!! I bought a similar item at Joann called Aleene's Paper Glaze, and it actually changed the color of the ink on my stamped images when applied over the ink. Wouldn't recommend it.

Yes, I have a product called Crystal Lacquer and it is identical to CE. Check your LSS to see if they have something similar.

I also got something similar from our LSS when I first started stamping and it worked great... Dried up eventually, but I'm sure CE would too if given enough time!

Here is a tip for using whatever product you decide to use: put a dab on a scratch sheet of paper at the same time you work on your project. Use your sample dab to check for dryness, instead of checking and leaving fingerprints on your project.

Cheers,
abcima
