We would all love to be
able to press roses and preserve them because of the special memories
they hold for us. But a fully opened rose - or a rose that is half open is
difficult to press.
Roses are rather tricky
to press. And I'll explain why.
You'll find that the
best flowers to press are small and rather dry. They should also be as
flat as possible.
Roses, on the other hand
are large and have a lot of moisture in them. For this reason, you'll
find that they do not retain their color very well - even if you do
manage to press them satisfactorily.
A rosebud may give you
better results. You could slice a rosebud in half lengthwise and then
try to press it. But even here you would have to experiment.
The best way to preserve a fully
opened rose is to carefully break off some of the petals and then
try to press these carefully. If you want to
buy roses to press
make sure that you choose a rose with small petals. Once the petals are dry you could re-arrange
them into a flower shape.
An even better way to
preserve a rose is to dry it whole in silica. But then of course, this
is not pressing. But don't give up.
There's always room for experimenting. That's half the fun.
