First one of my Perfect Pearls Mists was stopped up but I unstopped it pretty easy with hot water...problem solved.

But then I was using a mask and used tacky spray on it. It stuck too hard to the paper and completely tore the paper up, plus...it had paper stuck all over it. So then I had to get the UuDu out to get the paper off of the mask and it is still tacky. AND I bent the mask in a couple of little places because it is pretty intricate, (pulling it off the paper).

What did I do wrong with it? Did I spray on too much? I shook the can for quite a while before I sprayed it. Did I spray on too much mist and get the paper too wet?

I got out a new piece of paper, thankfully it's a Christmas pad and it has two of the pages I wanted to use. I'm not upset about the paper, I just am not happy that the mask is still too sticky and also I don't want it to happen again.

I misted again and the result is ok but I am not totally pleased.

I never tack down my masks I just hold them down and spray. I don't know anyone who sticks them down I'm sure there are some but everyone I know just holds them and sprays.

I never spray my masks down either. If anything I would use a little bit of painters tape to hold it in position. I find the spray adhesive to be really sticky. Hope you didn't ruin your mask!

Just remember a bad day at scrapbooking is still better than a good day at work!

It's not actually adhesive, it's repositionable tacky spray but it didn't work for the way I was using it to say the least.

I wouldn't use the tacky spray.

If I have a mask that I want to secure, I use the repositionable glue dots. That way, you aren't coating the whole thing in spray and I am not sure how those sprays affect the mask.

Oh repositionable glue dots sound like a good idea.

Someone one here told me to use the tacky spray so it works for them, I think I used to much, the dots would be so much easier.

Anyway, I have made some headway now with my misting an inking, finally.

You can try to use some repositionable tape to hold down your mask. Spray adhesives can be very, very sticky. I used it to glue a poster size photo to some matting. Then I tried to shift the photo a little bit and forget it. It was stuck to that matting for life!
