      This question comes through email by Jenn:

      Im just getting started and I read that things such as candies, sprinkles and so forth should be covered with a decoupage material…. how would I go about sealing the tiny round rainbow sprinkles and not have them clump together and stay "glued" so that I can put them in the resin?

      Hi Jenn,

      Yes, sealing is always a good idea before putting things in resin.  A white, clear drying glue is a good choice for many items, but doesn’t work well for sprinkles.  For those, I would recommend using our resin gloss sealer spray:  Place a layer of sprinkles onto a sheet of wax paper and apply a light mist.  Once it’s dry, shake them around and do it again.  If I were doing this, I would do it 5 to 6 times or so to make sure they were well coated.  Wait 10 to 15 minutes in between layers to make sure the spray doesn’t clump them all together.

      Good luck!
