Other Supplies:

  • Silica
  • Flowers or the item you want to preserve
  • Heavy Duty Plastic Container
  • Stir Stick

Step 1: Prepare Your Flowers

Begin by wearing gloves for protection. Fill a plastic container with silica and completely cover your flowers. Seal the container with a lid and leave the flowers inside for 3-7 days. This process removes any moisture from the flowers, preventing them from rotting.

Step 2: Mix your Resin

After drying your flowers, mix 1 part resin and 1 part hardener from your Acrylic Glacier Resin Bundle in a thick plastic container. Thoroughly mix the components for 3 minutes to ensure proper blending.

Step 3: Pour Resin into Mold

Pour the resin into your chosen mold, filling it about one-third of the way. For this demonstration, Amy used our Small Square Block Mold. Use a blow dryer on high heat, held approximately 12-15 inches away from the resin, to eliminate any bubbles present in the resin.

Step 4: Arrange Your Flowers

When arranging your flowers in the resin, work backward; position them so that you see their backs. Consider the composition of your arrangement, with more flowers at the base for a balanced look. Allow the arrangement to dry for a minimum of 24 hours.

Step 5: Seal With Resin

After the initial drying period, pour another layer of resin over the flowers to fully cover them. Let the resin dry for an additional 24 hours.
