My leaves dried prematurely can I still do.



Just found this info, my leaves have been air drying in the stem for about 3 days. I was told to purchase dried flower preservative from Hobby Lobby. After I cut the leaves off the stems I found I had to do this outside. Its night time and raining so I had to wait till this morning now they are more dried and curling. Can I still do this with glycerin or is it too late?

    I would but them between two barely damp dish towels, spreading out some of the curling leaves, for about an hour. put the dish towels on a baking pan so they wind leave water stains. If you must wait until tomorrow to purchase glycerin, just add a little more water to the towels when the top one seems dry. When you are ready, let the leaves or flowers air dry again, then follow your glycerin directions. Best wishes 😇💞
