I use flowers, leaves and herbs from my garden. All plants are collected by hand and unique. Each flower petal is stored under the press for at least 2-4 weeks. Plants must be dried under the press in a warm and dry place until it dries completely. Then I sort and select the best samples. It is necessary to throw out many petals, which strongly fade when dried.
I use dried flowers in a natural form without additional coloring for a making compositions. Pressed flowers should be protected from direct sunlight and must be protected by UV protection glass to prevent fading. I process plants against the causes of degradation, and because of this they retain color for a long time.
Usually pressed flowers can maintain their natural color for a long time, but some minor fading is inevitable.
