Luckily I have not wasted all those little roses - my first attempt was with three large roses and some leaves. I'm disappointed, but the roses I can easily replace. The acrylic water came from the big W - my mistake for trying to cut corners. I've been to Michaels and have gotten a true hard setting resin - after the 50% off coupon it was the same cost I thought I was saving with in the first place. Now if I can just figure out what to do with a purple, sticky blog adorned with some gorgeous roses....
I'll keep you posted!
