If I am writing something in RI on wax paper, how long should I let it dry before I try to pick it up? I'll be writing it in a tip 2 or 3 so it won't be too bulky. Any thoughts?

My instructor gave me a tip on this. On the side of your wax paper, make a few dots about the same width and size of your letters or flowers. Then you can test the dryness of them by peeling off one of the dots to see if it is dry. If it's not, wait longer and peel off another dot. Once you peel off a dot that is completely dry, you will know that your flowers or letters are dry and safe to peel off. icon_smile.gif

The drying time can vary depending on humidity - dries quicker in a less humid environment (air-conditioning is great for RI!). A few hours should be sufficient.

Great tip from the previous poster! I'll use that in the future. icon_wink.gif
