    dave, put the saran wrap under it next time on a solid flat surface and let it dry at least 24 hours. anything sticky or soft, leave it alone, the center tends to stay wet but will swell if you disturb it too soon...i just tried my light string under the one i made, it works great...my cauldrun kept mine weighted down while it dried.

    now that i know the wrap is good for not letting it stick, i'm going to fill my pvc candles with some stuff and put in my led candles wrapped in saran wrap and tape them so they stay where i want them in the pvc pipe with the stuff supporting them....then i wont have to use hot glue to make a shelf for them to sit on, that gets messy...........ya'll are so good here, thank you for all the great sharing...

    Good effect... I dislike the no servicability aspect... I wonder if this were done on top of a cheap plastic drop cloth then the plastic sheeting could be removed from the back side (yes it would be a lot picking away) and then you could remove the lights if needed....

    I wonder if you used a cardboard sheet as the base and poked holes smaller than the lights being poked into them you could have a way to remove them.

    You would just poke the lighting holes after all has dried and they would be flush to the bottom of the cardboard with the exception of the wiring.

    you dont need to poke the card board, i just did another one on the plastic wrap over a flat surface and then covered my forms to make space with the wrap, what you get is a "hard shell" when it dries, the wrap falls off, it wont stick to it dry at all.....i;ll post some pictures tomorrow...i pushed some of the lights in the holes in the shell so they show more....this is a great effect.........the shell i have is very hard, if you store it carefully from year to year, theres no reason for it to break, no more than a tombstone.
