I finished a set of three memorial pictures last month. The order came from a dear friend following the loss of her Mother. She wanted the flowers from the service preserved in the form of three 11 x 14" framed pieces for her and her two sisters. The white pom pom mum daisies were a challenge to press. They just didn't want to dry and some were starting to turn brown. Finally, I placed the press in my oven after warming it to 170 degrees and then turning it off. After a few cycles I saw a dramatic difference. I mounted each picture in a simple black frame and my customer was extremely happy with the results. I've posted two of the three (unframed) pieces below.
