Special Occasions

Resin preservation is not just for weddings. It would be meaningful to preserve any bouquets that are special to you ~ Anniversary, Birthday, Mother's Day or even flowers from the significant places, people or events in your life. Also, resin bouquets of your favourite flowers would be a unique art piece to accent your home decor.

Wedding Already Past?

If your wedding has past and you would have liked to preserve your bouquet, a few of each of the loose blooms and leaves from your florist is all I need. If you are not located in the Vancouver area, you can order from one of our local florists and save the shipping costs. Also, If your bouquet is already dry and you would like to preserve it, please send a message in the contact below.

A Very Special Gift

This is also a thoughtful gift for Mom, bridesmaids, flower girls and Grandparents or a very special wedding gift for the bride herself! Any friend or family member that loves flowers or gardening would appreciate their favorite flowers preserved in resin as a beautiful memento, keepsake or decor art piece.

How we preserve your wedding bouquet

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 or shipped as soon as possible after the wedding or special occasion. Friends or family members can also deliver or ship the bouquet if the bride is not available. Recutting the stems to aid the flowers to take up more water is also very helpful. It is important to note that any damage such as wilted, bruised or crushed petals cannot be reversed in the preservation process.


Once the bouquet is received, the best blooms are selected and carefully and individually dried in silica gel. Depending on the size and thickness of the florals, this can take aproximately 2 weeks. Some colors will change, darken, lighten or become translucent in the drying and resin process. This is completely normal and depends on the condition and hydration of the flowers. It is especially apparent in pink, red and white botanicals. Also, darker purple and red flowers will dry very dark. Once dry, a creative design is made in a mold and an image will be emailed for your consideration and approval.


The next step is pouring the resin. Over a number of days, many fine layers are gently poured to avoid damaging the delicate floral ingredients. Each layer of resin must set before the next layer is poured. As this is handcrafted art, some micro bubbles and small imperfections are expected. The resin is generally poured to aproximately 1.50 inches in depth. Any blooms that are deeper than 1.50 inches will be covered in resin to protect the blooms, but will not be submerged under the resin. This produces a stunning three dimensional effect!

 

Lastly, approximately 10 days are needed to ensure that your resin art piece is completely dry, hardened and cured. The entire process takes aproximately 4 weeks in total, at which time you can expect to receive your preserved bouquet treasure.

 

All resin art is non-toxic, and produces no VOCs or fumes. Please keep your resin art away from direct sunlight as you would with any piece of art. Some yellowing may occur over time.
