I let the prints to dry for a whole week (just printed in advance and didn't get to use it for a while), so when I sprayed it with a hairspray my colors started to run a little. I had to do many short layers and wait out until it dries out. Anyway, next day I used these prints in my soap. I've got to mention that the same bleeding problem appeared when I tried to slightly spray it with alcohol (as it was recommended in one of the tutorial as I recall) so I proceeded without it. Finished my soap, sealed it, and put away. Now, My Complaint - one week later I took it out ( a friend has ordered a gift basket for a baby shower) the pictures are completely washed out, they became sooooooo blurry, you can barely see anything - just one big ugly stain. All the ingredients used were from you guys, starting from M&P to a mold. Didn't even used any fr. oils in the layers attached to the pictures. So very disappointed!

Hi Ev! I'm sorry to hear that this paper gave you trouble. Sometimes when the ink runs after being sprayed with hairspray, it is a printer issue. We have found Laserjet printers to work the best! We have found that spraying the design with hairspray after a day or two helps prevent this. I will be emailing you personally to help you troubleshoot why you are experiencing these problems :)
