drying flowers from Mom’s funeral bouquets…
- that silica gel stuff: nuke it… smells funny, dries it in two minutes or so, but kills the color… you can also use kitty litter
- hang it up: in a dark place for nearly a month
- that silica gel stuff: place in airtight jar for a week
- put the metal to the petal: pound the flower into a light colored cotton material, it will basically paint itself onto the cloth
You can also use sand (in an open container) instead of the sealed container of silica.
I also tried rice (which absorbs water)… we shall seeeeeeeee…..
