Newest Craze in Decorating is Silk Flowers in Acrylic Water


They look so lifelike, that time and time again people bend to smell them and touch them. Across the nation, silk flowers in crystal-clear acrylic "water" are showing up in homes, cafes, restaurants and offices. At a fraction of the cost of constantly replacing fresh-cut flowers, and fooling everyone into thinking that they ARE fresh-cut flowers, these arrangements are a sensible decorating idea. + How is this done? It isn't as difficult as one might think. The most important thing to remember when making one of these arrangements is that you have to use very high quality silk flowers for the illusion to work. The acrylic "water" may look like the real thing, but if the flowers are obviously silk, no one is going to be fooled. The ultimate goal with these wonderful arrangements is to fool people into thinking that they are real, fresh-cut flowers. That being said, step one would be to choose your flowers. Step two would be to choose your container. Naturally, this would have to be a clear, glass container for the illusion to work. Step three - decide what materials you would like to include in the arrangement.

For example, some arrangements look best with some clear glass gems or some river rocks, or perhaps even some small sea shells at the bottom of the vase. Once that's decided, you'll want to do a dry run before mixing your acrylic and pouring it into your vase. If there are a lot of flowers involved, tie them off with string that you can later cut once the acrylic has hardened. Liquid Illusions is one of the best acrylic water kits on the market today, and very simple to use. The directions are included, and you can mix your acrylic right in the container that the kit comes in! Let your arrangement sit still for 24 to 48 hours in order for the acrylic to set, and there you have it! Your very own Floral Illusion!

These wonderful arrangements are replacing fresh cut flowers in homes, hotels, offices, cafes and restaurants across the nation and around the world. They last forever and only require light dusting from time to time. Whether you make your own, or purchase a pre-made arrangement, you're sure to enjoy this new craze in decorating!

About the Author: Elizabeth Knick is the owner of Floral Illusions Floral Illusions specializes in taking high quality silk flowers and arranging them in crystal-clear acrylic "water". They have over 6 pages of arrangements to choose from, ranging from a simple red rose in a bud vase to a large arrangement of tall Calla Lilies, and everything in between. Prices are very reasonable, and there's something for every budget.

Floral Illusions now carries all items necessary for do-it-yourselfers to make their very own "Floral Illusions" at home! Silk flowers, vases, acrylic water kits and more!

If you're tired of purchasing fresh-cut arrangements only to have the wither and die within a few days, perhaps it's time you checked out Floral Illusions and the silk flower craze that's sweeping the decorating world!
