Hi everyone. I'm having trouble getting various petals and rose centres to stay put on wires. I use very little, just damp, gum glue adhesive. Some have been left to dry for 3 days but still the wire comes loose. I pinch the end of the petal at the wire and it gets squished well when I use the double sided veiner. Any thoughts as to what the problem could be? Thanks.

Try bending a tiny hook in the end of the wire...that way the paste gets squished into the space between the sides of the wire, locking it in.
