Tutorials on How to Dry & Press Flowers to Embed into Resin
The tutorials that I will be covering during the month of July, for Nunn Design Summer School, involve embedding pressed flowers into resin. We are confident that once you explore adding pressed flowers to resin, you will want to learn more about preserving your own pressed flowers!
There is a great deal of information on the Internet about how to dry and press flowers. Here are some of the tutorials that I thought were helpful, informative and if nothing else, had great photographs.
1. Preserved Gardens
By far, this tutorial, How to Press Flowers, Leaves, and Herbs, from Preserved Gardens was one of my favorite blog posts that I came across:
- The author covered dyeing your pressed flowers,
- She has an amazing collage of what flowers looked like pressed – in her “Images From My Pressed Flower Collection” and several other tips that I didn’t see anywhere else.
- She even covers fruit and vegetable preparation!
Really, everything you need to know is covered here and done very thoroughly!!
In this tutorial, on How To Press Flowers, I appreciate the detail of how to “pick” flowers and store them until they can be pressed. I find tutorials with illustrations or visuals to be very easy to learn from!
3. fine Gardening
This fine Gardening tutorial on pressing flowers, has a guide to “which flowers press best” as well as a tutorial on how to build your own flower press.
4. The House That Lars Built
In this tutorial from The House That Lars Built Blog, the author covers 3 methods for pressing flowers; pressing in a book, ironing and microwaving. I have to admit I’m a total sucker for beautiful photographs! This blog has that!!!
5. Design Sponge
Couldn’t resist including a post from the Design Sponge Blog. Not any new information that we haven’t already covered, but the photos are so stinking beautiful in DIY Pressed Flower Wall Art!
