      Hope this is ok to ask here as it’s not strictly about resin itself. I’m having trouble with the flowers I want to embed in resin. I dry or press them but when I seal them with hairspray they just stick to the paper I put them on to dry and rip up when I try to remove them. I have tried greaseproof paper and waxed paper but have the same problem with both. Any suggestion? Am I spraying them with too much spray? Thanks

      Hi Charlotte, have you tried spraying one side at a time, then letting them dry before turning?

      Hi, no but I thought of that just after I posted. I guess I’m being too impatient because they are tiny flowers and loads of them.
