secretbee33:  Since a lot of paint/sealers are water based, they will eventually cause the dried flowers to droop as they re-asborb the water.  

I’ve had some luck with very cheap aquanet superhold hairspray and some oil-based sealers.  But the hairspray is far, far easier.  Spray a thin all over coat, wait 1-3 minutes, spray again, and again, and again.  Test the hold until bits don’t fall off.  

With some dried flowers, no amount of hairspray works and you need to move up to the sealer.
