four leaf clover
I have a four leaf clover I found it today in the yard... I wanna do something to save it but I'm not sure what
Do you have a resin kit? It would look so cool if you made a necklace out of it. Or get two thin sheets of round, metal/plastic edged glass and wedge it between
I would press it first, even before you decide what to do with it, to dry it out and stop it going all yucky .
I'm desperate to find a four leafed clover because I want to make a pendant out of it, something similar to this...
... now that I've got my soldering iron and mircoscope slides and copper tape (it was an EPIC mission to gather together all that lot, seriously).
T_T My staindglass tools are all packed away in boxes....
Someone told me to use two things of wax paper and iron them together making it really tight...
I wish I had some resin that would be so pretty
THAT'S the thing I meant, Izzy =) excellent.
Hmm I don't know what else to suggest, I don't normally work with plants.
I have one that I found when I was a kid and i cellotaped it to a peice of paper, it's still alright even now, bit darker but still ok, I still don't know if it's a real one though
A real four leaf clover isn't sharing a steam with any of the other leaves I believe...
Though even if it is sharing I think its still lucky *huggles the book she has her clover in*
Right now its wrapped in news paper, banana paper and between the pages of a heavy book
I found a clover that had 2 top bits (so 2 sets of leaves) growing from one stem once, it was a weird looking thing haha. Yay mutated plants!
I haven't pressed any flowers in agesss, I did press a flower my boyfriend gave me a while ago though (he basically picked it of a bush (naughty Chris haha) and went "Here you go, it's for you", but I thought it was sweet and I wanted to keep it). I didn't put it in a book to press it though, I stuck it between a few sheets of kitchen roll and then between 2 bits of wood, bound the bits of wood up with string and stuck it in the microwave for a few minutes. It sounds like a mad way to do it, but it worked!
sounds like a lot of work.
And luck! The only thing a man has ever picked for me was a leaf off a tree or grass to throw at me.. So I think if someone picked me some pretty flowers I'd do the same and want to keep them hehe
