Default Equivalents of Crystal Effects and Heat & Stick Powder

Can someone tell me if there are equivalents of Crystal Effects and Heat and Stick Powder available at Michael's or JoAnn's?

Crystal Effects equivalents:
Royal Coat Dimensional Magic (made by Plaid, found in the paint/stencil isle)
Ranger's Glossy Accents (scrapbook/papercrafts isle, I believe)
Aileen's Paper Glaze (adhesives isle)

Also equvalent, but not always found at the stores you mentioned:
Diamond Glaze
Crystal Laquer

As for the Heat & Stick:
Stamp -n- Bond (made by Stampendous, found in stamps/ink isle)

Also equvalent to Heat & Stick, but not found at stores you mentioned:
A*Muse Simple Stick

I know there are probably others of each that I forgot to mention, but these were the ones I could get right off the top of my head. Hope it helps.

Thanks Lisa. I, too, needed the info. I am going to adhere sequins or rinestones on felt. Do you have any suggestions about the best adhesive?

You're welcome. Felt is tricky to use adhesives with, because it is so fuzzy and textured, vs. a flat, SMOOTH surface, KWIM? But if sewing them on is just not an option, pretty much any clear-drying (all of the above apply) liquid adhesive will work OK. My only suggestion would be to put a weight of some sort (e.g. a book) on top of your project during drying time to make sure that the the adhesive gets down into the fibers, adhering your sequins and rhinestones really well. Good luck!

Are you kidding me??? I looked high and low (or so I thought) at the Michaels in town here to find this kind of EP. I wound up ordering the Sticky Powder from Biblical Impressions, currently on its way to me in the mail. FWIW, BI sez: "Sticky Powder does have a shelf life. Only order what you think you will use within 6 months. The older the powder, the easier it is to overheat."

I have seen it at two different Michael's locations. Maybe they were just out of stock when you were there. (?) Edit to add: I'm not 100% positive, but I *think* I may have seen it at Archiver's, as well. But don't quote me on that! LOL
