Can anyone suggest as to what to spray on vellum paper to dry the ink? It has been wet as of about 3 hours now. Hair spray just curled the paper. Any help as soon as possible would be great. Thanks in advance

Connie, what kind of ink? Did you use your printer or use a stamping ink? If you used pigment ink, it will take forever to dry. And even then I wouldn't trust it to be totally smear-proof. You can emboss, but you have to be careful with the heat.
I think with both printer and pigment stamping ink, I've had to allow for drying overnight. Some vellum papers may be a bit different, though, I suppose... And maybe a little heat or dry air would help speed things along.

Let us know how you work it out!

I wonder if the cold or cool setting on a hair dryer might help.

Just not sure, as we said she sprayed with hair spray and it just curled up. I wonder if Matte spray or some kind of fixative spray would work. I will tell her tomorrow and see what she can do to save them. I will post back as soon as we find the answer.

Thanks again
