Im glad to know about the bubbles! i just bought several bags of silica gel and several resin kits. i have about 12 Night Blooming Cereus opening RIGHT NOW that im going to dry in the silica and TRY to set in resin! Thry are really big and Hobby Lobby didnt have any molds even CLOSE to the size. Since i have a week to wait for them to dry i will look on Amazon. I bought some giant christmas balls at Hobby Lobby that im also going to cut in half down the seem to see if they work as a mold. I read on another site about spraying the flowers with polyeurythane spray paint before setting them in the resin because they hold up better. These flowers bloom at night and are dead by morning but they are so beautiful that i want to keep them! If i get this right, i will be making tons of paperweights because i have a greenhouse FULL of tropical flowers that i love! Im so glad you mentioned the bubbles and warm water! your orchid is beautiful. They are one of my favorites so im probably gonna try some of mine. I was doing last minute research while waiting for these blooms to open all the way. Im glad i stumbled upon this! Wish me luck!
