  • What I did with my new orchids!

    I posted some weeks ago saying I'd just had a new batch of orchid flowers delivered , but wasn't sure was to do with them. I decided to mix the orchids with semi-precious stones to attract more buyers and I've just started adding them to my website (I have set up some albums on here AND finally joined Etsy!), so I thought I'd put a few on here for some feedback before I load more on!

    They are great! Are they real flowers? Do you glaze them or something? Really beautiful! Well done!

                    Wow! I've just looked at your website and see they're flowers coated in resin.
                    Do you have to treat the flower in some way to stop it deteriorating inside the resin? I always thought you couldn't use anything that had moisture in it.
                    Best wishes

                        Beautiful designs.We chatted to your OH at a fair a few weeks ago about your gorgeous jewellery , it looked stunning.
                        I'd be very interested in having some flowers coated for my mum as i have a few roses bushes out of her garden she couldn't take when she moved ,how long does it take ?

                          Thanks guys for all the lovely things you have said!

                          The flowers are real, but I don't preserve them myself as I buy them from flower farms already preserved in resin or acrylic or coated with lacquer. I have been trying to find out how to use electroforming as a method of preserving flowers, but I haven't cracked what kind of transformer to buy. If I do work out how this is done and decide to give it a go (it will depend on costs), I would be able to do customer requests then.

                            well Alison, I think they are great. It would be great if you could find out how to do it yourself though as the possibilities are endless really! It must be so frustrating wanting to learn how to do something but not knowing how!

                              It is. If I wanted to coat them in metal gold, silver, etc.(I don't), that would be fine, but I can't work out how it is done without metal, although I know it involves sand LOL!
