I have been attempting to put dried pressed flowers in resin molds for weeks now and only a select few have not lost their colour. I mix the resin correctly, pressed the flowers for 2-3 weeks and have even tried drying them in the microwave but they still loose their colour and turn yellow or brown. How can I fix this?

Hi! I am also wondering the same. I have checked out throughout this website and scoured google and still looking for a good solution to retain my flowers’ color. I did order the resin sealer, but I find that it is hard to cost because the spray comes out with a lot of force/pressure? And the flowers blow everywhere? Especially the delicate, very light pressed ones.
I also tried glue but it sounds strange to inject water back into a flower that was dried!
Any tips on using a resin sealer in a gentle way?
