Floral Resin Art - FAQ

Can you preserve my Flowers for me in a Custom piece? What is the process?

Yes, of course! I can work with either your already dried flowers or fresh florals. Contact me directly 780-207-5151 to discuss your Custom Order and questions you may have.

Note: I charge a $50.00 fee If I dry the flowers.

All custom orders require a 50% Non-Refundable Deposit before I Cast in Resin.

Once the flowers are dried, you and I can either design a layout together or I can design one for you.

Fresh Blooms: The best results for preserving the most authentic colors, shapes and textures of your flowers is to dry the freshest blooms possible. It is very important that the bouquet is kept cool, hydrated in water and delivered as soon as possible after the wedding or special occasion.

To aid the flowers to take up more water it is also very helpful to recut the stems. Please note that wilted, bruised, discolored or crushed petals cannot be reversed in the preservation process. Replacement flowers can be purchased from your florist if some of the blooms are too damaged to preserve.

Drying Flowers: Once the bouquet is received, the best blooms and greens are carefully and individually dried for approximately 2-3 weeks. During the drying and resin process certain colors can change. Red, pink and purple can darken and white tends to yellow or become cream colored. Some flowers may appear to have translucent spots in the resin depending on how bruised they were when they were dried. This seems to be most apparent in roses. Once all the botanicals are dry, a creative design is made in the mold of your choice.

Colour of Flowers: Red flowers will turn a burgundy color, purple or sometimes even a brown color. Pinks can darken and whites tend to become cream colored or yellowish. Please understand I have no control over the color changing process that will occur.

Greenery: Some greenery will turn dark. Some greenery will look slightly rippled once they have been dried.
