On materials that could oxidize the resin, cause bubbles, release moister, etc - spray with an acrylic spray. That is the bottom line I am getting from these sites. I picked some up for my project and hope it works, but maybe if you want to experiment with those labels again give it a try? I know the stuff is expensive for a small can (cost $7 for me for a very small spray can). Just a thought - best of luck and happy turning
