Hair spray, but only from an aerosol can. It will come out too gloppy and weigh your flowers down in a pump spray. Also there are clear sealers at craft stores.
I have always heard people using hair spray.
Hi Ginger, hope this helps,
A gentle burst of clear spray paint is all you need to preserve your pressed flowers. They need to dry thoroughly after being coated with spray paint. I use bowls filled with sand to stand the stems/toothpicks in. You can also use sand-in-a-fancy-dish to make a pretty flower centerpiece! Rustoleum makes some nice clear coats
Using a can of ordinary hairspray, you simply work your way around the rose covering the petals, stem and leaves with the liquid. The hairspray holds the petals firm and prevents them from falling off while hung upside down.
