Make Time & Drying Process:
Each piece is a one of a kind made from pressed flowers. In our Bouquet Blocks we use whole preserved flowers and stems to create a 3-D effect. Blocks are built in layers of resin so that the flower can be on different layers to create this effect. With this being said, bouquet blocks require 3 to 4 months because of this process to be made. Flower preservation is an extensive process with many steps that must be done in a time frame that is subjective to the specific flower’s attributes. Our make time begins from the moment we receive your flowers in the mail and return shipped to you. Please keep in mind that all flowers have their own unique dry times and personalities in resin.
Note: In our bouquet blocks we do not use berries and closed roses/flowers as they are inclined to create mold. Oversized flowers and King Protea are subject to an up charge because they use additional resin. The thickness of the block depends on the height of flowers within the preservation.
Bubbles & Color Change:
Please be aware we cannot control bubbles or imperfections that appear in the resin after the preservation is completed. We do our absolute best to mitigate any defects that may occur but, we gently remind you that each piece is a handcrafted work of art. Variations in resin and look may differ from one piece to the next. Flowers will change color in the preservation process. This is a very natural occurrence as the flower’s quality and texture will change in the drying process. Flowers become more brittle and the hue tends to fade. For example, orange flowers may turn yellow or white flowers can become off white or yellowed. White calla lilies and lisianthus flowers will turn yellow. Some flowers like hydrangea, orchids and roses will show translucent spots once placed in resin.
Instructions of Care:
Bouquet Blocks can be cleaned with light glass cleaner on a soft towel.
We urge you to take special care of your preservation to ensure longevity of the piece. We recommend all resin item are displayed out of direct or indirect sunlight, and in a cool air conditioned environment. Resin can become malleable or yellow in heat regardless of its quality or brand.
We do not use berries or closed roses/flowers in these arrangements as they are difficult to dry and could cause mold to permiate the block is not fully dried inside. Oversized flowers and King Protea require additional resin to work with, and are subject to upcharge.
Thickness of the block depends on the height of the flowers within. Wooden bases are custom made to fit your specific block.
To further prevent mold, we will take extra time to fully preserve and dry your flowers to be certain there is no moisture; therefore, bouquet blocks require 2 - 3 months for production. We keep you posted with photos as the flowers move through production stages.
All items are handmade, and each piece is one of a kind. The photos are a reference to the item you will receive. We cannot control any bubbles or imperfections in the resin or flowers after preservation. Flowers do not maintain their original color or texture when they are preserved. They become brittle and can change color once placed in resin. Red flowers will become darker burgundy, orange flowers may turn more yellow and some white flowers become translucent. We do our best to mitigate imperfections with our expertise.
