Default Glimmer Mist on Flowers?

Has anyone tried using Glimmer Mist on their flowers? I know it says that it isn't waterproof, but I've seen it suggested that you can put a "protective" coat over it to make it so? Anyone have any ideas of what that could be or tried out the Glimmer Mist on their ribbon or flowers? TIA!

Dye. Mostly used for scrapbooking - but I heard it mentioned on a flower tut about using it on flowers, unfortunately she didn't go into it much. I know it isn't waterproof, so I was wondering what she used to make it so. It mentions on the Tattered Angels website that you can use a "protective coating", but no clue what that might be or if it would be possible to use on something like a flower. I might try just emailing the company .

I'm just guessing about the protective coating, but sometimes a quick spray or two of clear spray paint is used, usually clear acrylic paint, as a protective coating. It comes in matte, satin or gloss finishes. Hairspray is also used but I don't think that would be very permanent.

Thanks for the ideas . I'm guessing it must just be a no-go for hair flowers - too bad, I think it would have been fun to layer some of those colors!
