  • I have been working all fall to preserve leaves and haven't figured it out yet. I tried a spray lacquer, which worked but my leaves became very crumbly. Then I tried soaking them for 1-3 days in glycerin and water (Martha Stewart's method) but they all turned brown. Then I tried ironing them between two pieces of wax paper and again, they crumbled. I know at least one of these ways should have worked, I think maybe I just did something wrong
