  6. She absolutely knows her stuff. Thank nifty for doing an I depth, voice over with details. Much easier to understand the how and why's.

  7. I've been playing around with pressing flowers and I've discovered that the best method (for amateurs) is to take books without glossy paper, fold one or two pieces of printer paper in half and put the flowers and petals in the sandwich of paper, then put the sandwich in the center of the book. I've tried just stacking books but oddly, I discovered that I got the best results by putting the thin books (with flowers) under my mattress, laying over the boards of the box frame. Then, every day or two I take the book out and carefully take the paper sandwich out (do not open it until the flowers are dry, if the paper feels damp or cold they are not dry) and carefully I put it in the center of another book and put it under my bed again. I let the first book dry out then I repeat this process until they are dry. I've found doing this method will dry them out faster and keep their colour much better. Note, this will warble the pages of the book and likely also stain them. I've also noticed that having stems or the bases of the flowers (the head) will make them less likely to keep their colour as they dry. Either it's because too much liquid or potentially the plant is sucking the moisture back into the stem and it takes longer to dry. I've given up trying to press some flowers with their stems because of this.
