[Histonet] Bird feather

From:"Elena Alsing"

Greetings to all!
How do you make bird feather stay on the slide? We received feather shafts in formalin. I decalcified them in equal amount of sodium citrate and formic acid and then process them. They cut nicely but they keep on lifting off the
slide. I put them on plus slides and air dried them over the weekend - didn't work. I put them on probe-on slides, let them dry dry overnight at room temp and hand-stained them - didn't work. I don't know what to do... Please HELP!
