About This Class

Want to freeze a bridal bouquet in time? With silica gel you can dry flowers and maintain their shape and colour. You can use resin to create a beautiful piece or art to display for years to come. I will cover the drying process, safety, the resin process as well as the sanding and cleaning up process. You can also used flowers that have been dried in the traditional way (hanging upside down) in resin the same way I'm using the flowers in this video.
