Re: [IPp] sites still falling off



Sharon, We use the mastisol spray,maybe its a different concentration than
the liquid, also we use silhouettes and they go in at a 30 degree angle so I
guess its hard to get them to fall off.  we have been really lucky with
Kaycee this summer.  The mastisol really seems to work.  Maryann Crawford
