So, when I learned that flowers can be dried in the microwave, these little beauties were my first (and most available) choice for experimentation.
I found the instructions here. Equipment required (beside the microwave and flowers)? Two microwave safe plates and paper towels.
- When they say "dry, not crisp" - listen.The color in the petals stayed fairly true to the fresh blossom. Can't wait to try this again.
- A flattened, dried rose blossom has its place, but I prefer the individual petals.
- A glass plate is a good weight.
- Don't use your best flowers the first time. Experiment with "seconds"!
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. Psalm 100:5
