they’re very aged already, and I gave them a little glycerin so they should stay this color. I’ve been playing around with plant materials lately, reading up on preservation and how to curate specimens properly- kind of interesting, like mad scientist stuff!
I’m gonne try to write up what I’m doing, when I go fern picking. I’m gonna make a shitload of preserved ferns for the etsy nature shop I am doing, and I think I’ll tell how I do it for those
also I just quilled a shitload of little teardrop shapes to put in the background of this piece- all made out of strips I cut out of the paper I made this week. I made a huge pile of oaty-colored paper the one morning when I was sort of half-asleep. Quilling hurts your fingers after a while!
