Congratulations on your decision to preserve your cherished varmala! Whether it’s from your own wedding, a loved one’s special day, or a significant anniversary, the varmala holds priceless memories that you wish to safeguard for a lifetime. As you embark on this preservation journey, understanding the art of drying flowers is key to ensuring that your varmala remains a beautiful symbol of love and celebration. Let’s explore the techniques of drying flowers for varmala preservation, making the process both meaningful and memorable.

Techniques for Drying Varmala Flowers For Varmala Preservation:

  • Air Drying:

      • Select fresh flowers from your varmala and gently remove any excess foliage.
      • Bundle the varmala flowers together with a rubber band or string, ensuring they are not overcrowded.
      • Hang the varmala  flower bundles upside down in a dry, well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight.
      • Allow the flowers to air dry completely, which may take several days to a few weeks depending on the varmala  flower type and humidity levels.
  • Silica Gel Drying:

      • Purchase silica gel from a craft store or online supplier.
      • Place a layer of silica gel in a container and gently nestle the Varmala flowers into the gel.
      • Carefully cover the Varmala flowers with more silica gel, ensuring they are completely submerged.
      • Seal the container and allow the flowers to dry for several days to a week, depending on the  varmala flower type and thickness.
  • Microwave Drying:

      • Place a layer of silica gel in a microwave-safe container.
      • Gently arrange the varmala  flowers on top of the silica gel.
      • Microwave the varmala  flowers in short intervals, checking frequently to avoid overheating.
      • Allow the  varmala flowers to cool completely before removing them from the silica gel.
  • Pressing:

    • Place individual varmala  flowers or small varmala  flower clusters between layers of absorbent paper or cloth.
    • Apply gentle pressure by placing heavy books or weights on top of the layers.
    • Leave the varmala  flowers pressed for several days to a few weeks until they are completely dry and flattened.
