How do I apply dried flowers?
The most common way to apply real dried flowers is to encapsulate them in acrylic or gel. This technique will allow your client to enjoy them much longer. However, if the flowers are pressed really flat, it is possible to adhere them with top coat and apply another coat over the top to protect them. Be very careful to not saturate them with too much monomer (if encapsulated) or too many strokes of top coat. The liquids will cause the delicate petals to become somewhat transparent. — Elaine Watson is global education director and VP of marketing and sales for Star Nail Products.
