This helps to keep sections of bone from floating.  I mount them on slides coated with water resistant wood glue, then immediately microwave dry the slides.  40% power for 3 minutes.  No doubt there will be variations, depending on the oven.

Is there anyone out there who is an "expert" on nails - specifically how to get them to stay on the slides??  We use Nair to soften the nails, and we have used plain "plus" slides, chrome alum, Elmer's glue, and gelatin -  all with very limited success.
