- Activa Flower Drying Art Silica Gel
- Plastic lidded container
- Fresh flowers
- Hinged double glass frame
- Double sided clear tape
Pour Flower Drying Art into the container to a depth of at least 1.5” to cover the bottom. Cut flowers into desired length.
Place flowers face up on the surface of the Flower Drying Art. Space flowers so they do not touch each other.
Slowly sprinkle Flower Drying Art around the base of the flowers, adding it to the top and sides of the flowers.
Cover the container with an airtight lid and put away in a dry place. Drying times vary depending upon the number of flowers in a container and the moisture content of the flowers. Watch for the blue crystals to turn pink. This action shows that the moisture from the flowers is being absorbed into the Flower Drying Art.
To remove flowers, slowly pour off the Flower Drying Art until blossoms are uncovered. Gently brush away the Flower Drying Art that may be on the petals using a soft paint brush.
Open the hinged double glass frame.
Select flowers using a pair of tweezers and move flowers into place on one side of the glass frame.
When the flower arrangement is completed secure it in place using small squares of clear double sided tape.
Gently close both side of the frame together and hinge shut.
Flower frame is ready to be displayed.
