So I only have one bottle of Mister Huey's mist - the opaque white. And to be honest, I don't use it much. But, it never dries! The very first LO I used it on back in May 2012...if you touch the misted area, you get white chalky stuff on your finger. Is that normal?!? I didn't do a really thick layer or anything.

And is there another brand that I might like better? I have the Heidi Swapp color shine gold lame and LOVE it. Is it as much fun in regular colors?

TIA!

My Mr. Huey's taxi is still wet in some spots, and I misted it days ago.

I have never had this problem with OA Sprinklers.

I haven't personally used any of the Mister Hueys, but a close friend of mine bought the opaque white and had the same complaint. She said the residue even came off on the page protector once it was in her album.

I think I've had the same thing happen with the Oct. Afternoon sprinklers I've used... I used it to create a big 'drippy' pattern, and the drips rub off on the page protector. In my case, I figured it was probably because I had such 'huge' spots. Maybe some art-supply fixative spray? (the kind of stuff you'd spray to protect a charcoal or pastel drawing...) Not sure whether you'd need to protect your photos from getting fixative on, or not, though.

The white is chalky and will always smear. You need to seal it somehow if it bothers you

Thanks for all the replies.

I really want something that's quick and easy to use...if it requires extra sealing steps then I probably just won't do it (I know how I am! lol). So I think I'll pick up another brand or 2 the next time I place an order here or visit A's.
